The GLOBE Program’s GLOBE Observer app is a citizen science app used around the world to collect measurements of land cover, tree height, mosquito habitat, and clouds. These “from the ground up” data complement and help NASA scientists understand “from the top down” satellite measurements. They also put first-person climate science into the hands of everyone with a smartphone.
