In this activity students build dioramas of futuristic weather stations to demonstrate their knowledge of weather forecasting. They will work in groups to research modern forecasting equipment and techniques, and then build a weather station that will do something we cannot do at present (such as stopping tornadoes). They will present their dioramas and then discuss the pros and cons of controlling the weather. (less)

In this story, the GLOBE Kids are extremely excited to perform a play for the rest of the school, demonstrating what they have learned about the Earth and all of its parts. They have a glitch when they can’t decide which Earth component is the most important, but end up learning a lot about the Earth, sun, water, air, soil, and living things – and the way these components are interconnected.

The GLOBE Classroom Assessment site provides sample student assessment tools and frameworks to provide teachers and students with evidence about progress on NASA's Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program goals. GLOBE Assessment has three main components: (1) GLOBE Assessment Standards - Broad overview of assessment indexing to standards and frameworks that specify commonly referenced science content areas and inquiry strategies (2) GLOBE Assessment Tools - Templates, rubrics, and guided exemplars to tailor your assessments. Exemplars are designed to assess students' deep understanding of GLOBE framework strategies. (3) GLOBE Assessment Alignment - Materials from GLOBE Conference 2001 Alignment Binder which provided tools to link GLOBE to National and State standards. (less)

The GLOBE Cave Protocol Field Guide utilizes existing GLOBE protocols to explore an extreme environment. Caves provide an opportunity to utilize GLOBE protocols to investigate underground environments and compare them to surface environments. Outside the cave, students record elevation, MUC, latitude and longitude, air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure. Inside the cave, students record air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure as well as observe and describe cave features in each room. Students also note evidence of biological activity and human impact. If water is present inside the cave, students record water temperature and pH. Follow up questions are included in the Field Guide. (less)

This online version of the earth system poster is based on the large Pathfinder dataset collected by NASA, NOAA and other agencies. Years included are 1987 and 2007. It features a series of interactive maps that allow students to investigate global patterns and variability in solar energy, surface air temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, soil moisture and vegetation over the course of a year. Map images are arranged in a WIST (Web Image Slide Tray) made up of columns and rows. For comparative study, there are controls to view monthly snapshots of each scientific parameter in a multitude of ways. A downloadable, printable version is also provided. (less)

GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment) is a worldwide, hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science education program. Students can learn to take scientific measurements in the fields of atmospheric science, hydrology, soils, and land cover. They can report their data through the internet, create maps and graphs to analyze the data, and collaborate with scientists and other students around the world. For teachers, professional development workshops, "how-to" videos, and a help desk are available. The site is available in several languages, including French and Spanish. (less)

This article describes GLOBE, Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment, a K-12 environmental education program supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The GLOBE program was introduced to teachers in a series of inservice workshops at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, a school in a region known for underachievement in math and science. As the teachers participated in the program, they learned basic GLOBE protocols, formed questions on each of the GLOBE topics, collected and analyzed data, and were introduced to the geology of the area. As a result, the teachers were excited about their experience and felt well-prepared to pass their newly-acquired knowledge on to students. (less)

On September 6, 1995, Hurricane Luis was a Category 4 hurricane located about 250 kilometers northeast of Puerto Rico. GOES-9, a new weather satellite in geostationary orbit, was undergoing a check-out period and tested a new, rapid scanning capability by taking high-resolution visible images of Luis at 22 images per hour, much more rapid than the normal rate of one image every 15 minutes. These images clearly show a number of hurricane features that had been hard to observe before, including the evolution of the eye-wall structures and small-scale vortex features within the eye. It is also possible to see the formation of the new hurricane arm to the southeast of the eye. This arm is marked by the formation of clouds in the bubbling regions that indicate intense updrafts. The island of Puerto Rico can only be seen as a stationary disturbance under the bright white cloud bank to the southwest of the eye of the hurricane. (less)

This is a freshman advising seminar. The professor of a FAS is the first year advisor to the (no more than 8) students in the seminar. The use of Global Positioning System (GPS) in a wide variety of applications has exploded in the last few years. In this seminar we will explore how GPS works, the range of applications, and the conflict between civilian users and military planners. This seminar is followed by a UROP research project in the spring semester where results from precise GPS measurements will be analyzed and displayed on the web. (less)

The use of Global Positioning System (GPS) in a wide variety of applications has exploded in the last few years. In this seminar we explore how positions on the Earth were determined before GPS; how GPS itself works and the range of applications in which GPS is now a critical element. This seminar is followed by a UROP research project in the spring semester where results from precise GPS measurements will be analyzed and displayed on the Web." (less)
