GLOBE Principal Investigator Dr. David Brooks attended the 2005
Estonian GLOBE Games, held August 9-11 at a summer camp on
shores of the Baltic Sea near the
town of Kuuresaare
on the island of Saaremaa. Students and teachers from
gathered to practice GLOBE protocols, make new friends, and develop partnerships.
Sparsely populated Saaremaa depends heavily on tourism, mostly from Scandanavian countries. Many
visitors come from Finland because Finnish and Estonian are very closely related languages. Saaremaa
is reachable by ferry service from the Estonian mainland
to the smaller island of Muhu,
which is connected by a short causeway to Saaremaa.
