1. Our Environment

    Investigation

    Goal

    • To help us understand who we are by determining what kinds of climates GlobalLab participants live in.
    • To help us understand who we are by determining what kinds of biomes GlobalLab participants live in.
    • To share your climate and biome with GlobalLab participants and to discover theirs.

    Equipment

    No special equipment

    Why use data from multiple participants?

    When more participants submit data about their climates and biomes, the better we can understand who we are as the GlobalLab community.
