Summary:How are people affecting your local environment? How is our planet changing? Join the “citizen science” movement, and you can help discover the answers. Citizen science is a form of open collaboration in which members of the public participate in the scientific process to address real-world problems. Volunteers can work with scientists to identify research questions, collect and analyze data, interpret results, make new discoveries, develop technologies and applications, as well as solve complex problems. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has a rich tradition of supporting citizen science. This tradition is being carried on through a portfolio of projects fostered and supported across the agency. Grab your smartphone and pencil, bring your clipboard and waders, sharpen your observation skills ─ and contribute to citizen science!
