The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program engages students around the world in observing and measuring aspects of their local environments, including atmosphere, bodies of water, soil, and land cover. Data gathered by students are provided to scientists for their use through a GLOBE Program Web site. The GLOBE Program, headquartered in Washington, D.C., has received support from several United States government agencies: the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); the National Science Foundation (NSF); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and the Departments of Education and State.
