In this interactive talk presented at the 2022 AMS Community and Citizen Science Symposium, Jessica Taylor and Dr. Jay Welsh from NASA walk the audience through the ins and outs of the award winning GLOBE and CLOUD GAZE programs, including how to use the app, what happens to your data, and how you can see what's being tracked around the world.
Jessica Taylor grew up in Florida where her love of thunderstorms led her to pursue a career in atmospheric science. Jessica began making GLOBE weather observations in 2000 as a student at Florida State University. Now as a Research Scientist at NASA, Jessica is the Principal Investigator for GLOBE Clouds. In 2021, more than 220k observations of clouds and sky conditions were documented and submitted to GLOBE’s worldwide database
Dr. Jason (“Jay”) Welsh (NASA Langley, SSAI) is a research scientist for NASA GLOBE Clouds and specifically works on CLOUD GAZE which is based out of the Science Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center with Science Systems and Applications, Inc.
