Four Protocols to Collect Data for the El Nino campaign.
To support GLOBE in this long-term campaign, we are recruiting, training, and equipping participants for four separate but related protocols representing a range of commitments from a light touch to an in-depth experience ,based on the needs and interests of you and your community.
The four protocols range from atmosphere to pedosphere observations; from very simple to more complex:
The cloud protocol: a quick assessment of the type and density of cloud cover as viewed from the collection site.
