GLOBE Observer Featured by Science News Organizations
Two prominent science news organizations recently featured GLOBE Observer citizen science activities. On October 29th, 2021, the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) EOS news highlighted the GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper in an article titled “App Tracks Harmful Mosquitos with Help from Crowdsourced Science.” The article is a summary of a peer-reviewed publication published in GeoHealth in August 2021 (GeoHealth, https://doi.org/10.1029/2021GH000436, 2021).
Then, on November 18th, 2021, Discover Magazine published an article called “Four Ways (in One App) to Help NASA Study the Changing Planet.” This article is a high-level summary of how citizen scientists can support NASA science by using the GLOBE Observer app to collect observations of clouds, land cover, mosquito habitats, and trees. The article originally appeared on the SciStarter website and was republished by Discover (https://www.discovermagazine.com/environment/four-ways-in-one-app-to-help-nasa-study-the-changing-planet).
