Let's bring water monitoring to the Great Lakes Mac races.
 
Citclops (Citizens´ observatories for coast and ocean optical monitoring www.citclops.eu) is an EU FP7 funded project with the aim to provide affordable bio-optical measurement tools for mobile end-devices (e.g. smartphones), which can also be used by the general public. Such citizen´s observatories aid in 1) an increased spatio-temporal data coverage and 2) an improvement of environmental science capacity and environmental stewardship of citizens.
Basic measurement principles of Citclops relate to the light regime in water (light availability, biomass, turbidity) via water colour, transparency and fluorescence. Water colour, for example, can be measured from simple images of the water surface, taken with smart phones or other cameras. The easy to use Citclops water colour App* [freely available for Android and iOS operating systems http://citclops.eu/participate/how-to-get-the-app] aids the user through measurements, while providing relevant metadata, such as  time, position, and basic quality control parameters. This allows an automated data upload to a map on the project website (www.citclops.eu). Data are standardised following international protocols and are prepared for sharing via the project webpage and national datacentres (e.g. SeaDataNet, Emodnet, GEOSS). 
Since the release of the App, more than 500 water colour measurements were collected worldwide, and aid project partners to improve data quality control, presentation, and App usability. Data are in particular located at near-coastal zones, where space borne images are most corrupted due to influences from land. Thereby, a complementary dataset for science and environmental monitoring is being created. 

We would be glad to welcome you to the Citclops user community!
For more info on the project and our techniques please refer to our project website. In case of questions please do not hesitate to contact Julia Busch (Julia.Busch@uni-oldenburg.de)

*Note: The App is in development and a new version will be available in July 2015 (new name: EyeOnWater). The current version is working on many, but not on all phone types. We recommend a prior check if images are correctly uploaded to the map on our webpage.

It Is Really Grand: The Grand Canyon
When we reach the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the fog was so thick we couldn't see the path. We walked along the path gingerly so we wouldn't take a wrong turn and hoped that the fog would lift in a few minutes. After an hour, we decided to get a camp si...

A proposed book to bring citizens and scientists together for the benefit of modern research and dissemination. 
 
We would like you to participate in a book on citizen science. A book we’re editing with great care to be a strong reference for researchers in the field.

We would like you to participate in a book on citizen science. A book we're editing with great care to be a strong reference for researchers in the field. In the following, you'll find the structure of this book, so you can have a general idea of the “story line” we would like to work on.
