Let's meet Citizen Science! Episode 1 - Nature's Calendar

Wednesday, 25 April 2018 14:20

We talked to Thomas Hübner from the Central Station for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) during the "Long Night of Research" in the Museum of Natural History in Vienna, Austria about the new phenology Citizen Science project "Nature's Calendar" about the the 10 phenological seasons in the project and what Citizen Scientists can observe in the Citizen Science App for Android and IOS.

The CitSci project "Nature's Calendar" is running on the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform and is the successor a prior phenology project called "Naturverrückt". The collected data is used for reserach about plant development and climate change by scientists in europe and across the world.
If you are interested in nature and how climate change influences plants and animal species, you can participate via website and smartphone apps @ www.naturkalender.at

  • New in our blog series: the Tea Bag Index (TBI) collects data on soil observations and in particular on the dynamics of soil decomposition. The degradation of organic matter in the soil is part of the global carbon cycle, which provides information about the biological activity of the soil and is therefore important for climate change.
