The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.



GLOBE Atmosphere Professional Learning Workshop

NASA Langley’s Science Directorate are global experts in air quality, radiation and climate, atmospheric composition, and active remote sensing. This GLOBE Atmosphere Professional Learning Workshop was designed to provide introductory information, as well as in-depth understanding of atmosphere concepts; specifically focusing on clouds and aerosols, and the relation to NASA’s active Missions studying this area of atmospheric science. This workshop provided GLOBE Protocol Certification in Clouds and Aerosols and deeper understanding of the topic for current and new trainers.
