goals for the training session
Goals for the Training Session
  • Provide an inquiry context for the data collection and science content
  • Provide accurate science content
  • Review procedures for data collection
  • Review data entry and analysis
  • Discuss classroom implementation ideas
  • Collect feedback from participants
inquiry context
Inquiry Context
  • How long does green-down take for a given species?
  • How does the green-down differ between different species?
  • How does green-down relate to air temperature?
  • Does green-down differ from year to year for the same tree/shrub?
why do globe scientists research green down
Why do GLOBE scientists research green-down?
  • To calculate growing season length and monitor interannual changes in growing season duration
  • To determine how environmental conditions such as air and soil temperature, soil moisture, and day length affect plant growth
  • To monitor the nature and extent of climate change and its effects on plants and animals
  • To help interpret satellite observations of greenness
science content what is green down
Science Content: What is green-down?

Green-down marks the end of the growing season for many plants. A color change is generally associated with green-down of leaves. The color will vary by species.

collecting data green up and green down study site
Collecting Data: Green-Up and Green-Down Study Site
  • Site Selection
  • At least 2 weeks before budburst
  • Convenient location
  • Native trees/shrubs or grasses that are not watered or fertilized are preferred
  • Tree and Shrub or Grass Selection
  • Identify dominant tree and shrub species or grass genus
  • For Tree and Shrub:
  • Select one dominant, native, deciduous tree/shrub
  • Select and flag a healthy, good-sized branch on the equator-facing side
  • For Grass:
  • Select a one-meter square area dominated by grass plants

Collecting Data: Protocol
  • First Time
  • Photograph your site
  • For Tree or Shrub:
  • Locate and mark leaf at end of selected branch
  • Locate and mark three other closest leaves
  • For Grass:
  • Locate the four longest green grass shoots.
  • Mark the base of each grass shoot.
  • Every Visit
  • Determine dominant color for each leaf or grass shoot
  • Or report either:
  • Snow Covered or Fallen
