During trainings, using GLOBE environmental science protocols and data visualization, methods and parameters parallel many of the same parameters used for C-IMAGE system recovery science.  for example. both C-IMAGE researchers and GLOBE citizen scientists collect and analyze atmospheric, hydrologic and sediment (or soil) conditions within their respective environments from the same locations over an extended time.  In this way, participants learn that science is along-term process and takes multiple participants to establish a meaningful data set to identify trends and eventually construct models of a system.

Podcasts from The Loop

The Loop is a series of podcasts which take an in depth look at C-IMAGE research. Partnering with Mind Open Media reporters Ari Daniel Shapiro and David Levin, our researchers share the importance of their studies and how they help our understanding of oil spills. David and Ari have produced eight podcasts and have more in the queue. The podcasts are linked below. Plug in and learn about our research!
