- Describing More Citizen Science Projects: Although I've collected over 80 of the most popular citizen science tools and projects currently running, more are being created every day. So OpenScientist will continue being the place for learning to participate in the most exciting projects around. It will also be a great time to update all the projects featured last year.
- Diving Deep into the Weather: Every year I like to pick one field of science and immerse myself to gain a fuller understanding of it. Last year's experience with Skywarn and the citizen weather observation program inspired my renewed interest in climatology and I want to learn as much as possible about it this year.
- Analyzing the Citizen Science Field: Collecting information on all these projects is the perfect way to identify trends and figure out what works, and what doesn't, in citizen science. These posts were very popular last year so I hope to have even more for you in 2012. With any luck we can help advance the field a little bit too.
So join us here each week for more projects and opinions from the world of citizen science. Because getting started is easy.
