Alex Mayer (CEE/GLRC), is the principal investigator on a project that has received a $52,771 research and development grant from the National Science Foundation.
The project is entitled “EAGER: Collaborative Research: The Role of Citizen Science in Watershed Hydrology Research: Relationships Between Volunteer Motivations, Data Quantity and Quality, and Decision-Making.”
This is a one-year project.
There is growing interest in using citizen science projects, public participation in scientific research, to measure hydrologic parameters. Hydrologic variability requires repeated measurements over long periods of time and over a wide range of locations.
