Citizen science is scientific data collection and research performed primarily or in part by non-professional and amateur scientists. Citizen science data has been used in a variety of the physical sciences, including physics, ecology, biology, and water quality. As volunteer-contributed datasets continue to grow, they represent a unique opportunity to collect and analyze earth-science data on spatial and temporal scales impossible to achieve by individual researchers. This session will explore the ways open citizen science data sets can be used in earth science research and some of the associated challenges and opportunities for the ESIP community to use and partner with citizen science organizations.
