Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) is an international environmental science research and education program. Through GLOBE, K-12 students are involved in authentic science investigations, led by GLOBE scientists who have designed the data collection protocols and who review and analyze the student data. Using the World Wide Web, GLOBE students report the measurements they have taken at their local study site to the Student Data Archive, which serves as a resource for both GLOBE scientists and students. Since GLOBE began in 1995, GLOBE students have entered millions of measurements into this archive and reviewed the resulting patterns and trends using tables, map visualizations, and graphing tools.
