Learn about the GLOBE Program student investigations that explore the Earth's atmosphere, weather and climate. After completing this eTraining module, users will be able to describe the structure and composition of the atmosphere and explain how differential heating of the Earth’s surface generates our planet's air circulation patterns. They will be able to identify the atmosphere as one of the interacting components of our Earth system, and will become familiar with the atmosphere protocols followed by GLOBE students when they collect data for their scientific investigations. Finally, they will be introduced to GLOBE data reporting and visualization tools and explore the steps of setting up a GLOBE Atmosphere study site. GLOBE eTraining consists of downloadable training modules, interactive digital field and lab experiences, and online assessments for each module- providing the opportunity for new and experienced GLOBE users to complete science protocol training online. GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment) is a worldwide, hands-on, K-12 school-based science education program.
