Description

The GLOBE Program is a worldwide community of students, teachers, scientists, and citizens working together to better understand, sustain, and improve Earth's environment at local, regional, and global scales. - from the GLOBE website

The GLOBE Earth Systems Poster Learning Activities were created to help students identify global patterns and connections in environmental data contained in the GLOBE Earth Systems Poster and to develop an understanding of the interactions of Earth systems. There are five other Earth System variables for students to analyze: surface temperature, cloud fraction, precipitation, aerosols, and biosphere. Copies of the poster and accompanying student activities are available online. All of the datasets from the original poster are now available for Science On a Sphere through the NASA Earth Observatory.
