Weather-IT is a series of weather-related citizen science projects developed by a Ph.D. student at The Open University in the U.K. to understand and improve the engagement of citizens in scientific investigation, by giving them the chance to collaborate with experts, join missions and run their own investigations.
For this study, principal scientist Maria Aristeidou is exploring the creation of a sustainable online community on weather missions. These missions include Snowflake Spotting, Identify the cloud!, Record the sunlight and others.
