GLOBE Observer: Clouds

GLOBE Observer is an international network of citizen scientists and scientists working together to learn more about our shared environment and changing climate. GLOBE Observer currently accepts observations of Clouds. Some data has been contributed under INTAROS WP4. Clouds observations help NASA scientists understand clouds from below (the ground) and above (from space). Since clouds can change rapidly, frequent observations from citizen scientists can help complete the scientific picture. The data collection may enable ground truthing of remote sensing observations of clouds, thereby contributing to a better understanding of the role of clouds in the temperature and energy balance of the earth.
