Excited about the potential for citizen science to contribute to robust
science outcomes, regardless of discipline?

Consider a presentation at the 2016 AGU Meeting!

Our session is PA032:  Robust science results from citizen science projects
across the disciplines

Session Description:  Citizen science has gained recognition due to new
technologies, the open innovation movement, and federal sponsorship. These
programs are often broad in scope, and interdisciplinary in nature. They
can be disruptive and go well beyond traditional arenas of outreach and
education. These varied programs can have common elements, e.g. image
analysis, crowd-sourced signals from social media, and geospatial
visualization. Citizen science data can elucidate scientific problems at
scales not otherwise tractable. Data have repeatedly been shown in multiple
fields to be high quality and useful. This session focuses specifically on
scientific results from these participatory programs, including published
research and operational applications. These results are naturally
discipline specific. However this session will provide an interdisciplinary
forum for these results to be shared and discussed broadly with
cross-cutting participation reaching deeper from individual disciplines to
the emerging field of citizen science as well as across citizen science
projects in different fields.

Invited speakers are Pamela Gay, Southern Illinois University, and David
Wald, US Geological Survey.

Conveners are Elizabeth MacDonald, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; Sophia
B Liu, US Geological Survey; Jake F Weltzin, US Geological Survey; and,
Nathan Case, Lancaster University.
