• A Call for Citizen Scientists Display by National Science Foundation
Four National Science Foundation sponsored investigators are collaborating to build a super computer model using citizen data gathered on Michigan’s Boyne River. The model’s goal is to forecast high or low water events, freshwater species habitat and even fishing and boating conditions up to 7 days in advance. If successful, this modeling technique can be used throughout the world to aid in sustainable management of water resources. Visit this display and learn how easy it is for you to feed river data into a super computer.
