Are you dealing with dust storms? Webinar today with GLOBE Observer

Today, August 6, GLOBE Observer invites you to join them at 11MT/1ET for a webinar.

Do you live in an area that experiences dust storms? The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment Program (GLOBE) team would like you to photograph dust events in your area and submit your photos using the GLOBE Observer app.

Join NASA GLOBE Clouds Project Scientist, Marilé Colón Robles, to learn more about how to collect your observations and educational resources you can use with formal and informal audiences.

Your observations will be used by scientists to verify satellite observations and see if their models have successfully predicted these dust storms and help scientists alert communities to better prepare for the harmful impacts of these storms.

Register for the webinar here.
