Welcome to the Student Climate Research Campaign Community Group


The GLOBE Student Climate Research Campaign (SCRC) aims to engage students around the world in measuring, investigating, and understanding the climate system in their local communities and the world. Drawing on GLOBE protocols and data - and other important datasets - students take climate-related measurements and investigate research questions about climate during the two year campaign.

The 2013 GLOBE Virtual Student Conference has begun! Check out what students have been learning about during Phase Two of the SCRC.

Check out the top participants and the rankings of all the participants in Phase One. And, claim your e-gift here (note you must be a member of the SCRC Community to view this page).

How to Get Involved: Goals of the SCRC:
  1. Click on the "Members" tab above and select "Join Community"
  2. Participate in the SCRC Discussion forums
  3. Complete any of the learning activities
  4. Participate in an SCRC webinar
  1. Increase student understanding and awareness of climate, including the  broad and integrative nature of climate, the role of climate in shaping community, and the difference between climate and weather
  2. Increase student understanding of and ability to conduct science research focused on climate
  3. Improve student global awareness through collaborations among students, teachers, and scientists that are focused on understanding the Earth as a system


Have you participated in the SCRC via a Climate Foundation or Research Investigation? Please tell us about it through the following form:


See what Dr. Waleed Abdalati, NASA's Chief Scientist, has to say about the campaign:

By participating in the SCRC campaign, students will contribute to climate science studies, connect with other schools and classrooms around the globe, and be inspired to explore and conduct science investigations of their own as part of their increased awareness of climate-related environmental issues and Earth as a system.

In order to participate in the SCRC, do any one or all of these three linked components to enhance teaching and understanding of climate issues:

1. Climate Foundations

These introductory activities allow students to study real data and understand key concepts of weather and climate.

2. Intensive Observing Periods

Students from around the world are encouraged to take themed measurements over a short period of time, and analyze their data.

Research Investigations thumbnail

3. Research Investigations

Students may identify and carry out their own research projects, either alone or with other schools in their country and around the world.
