Era of Citizen Science and Big Data: Intersection of Outreach, Crowd-Sourced Data, and Scientific Research II Posters

Session ID#: 10492

Session Description:
The traditional method of outreach to formal, informal, science and non-science audiences has undergone a fundamental change with recent advances in technology, social media and crowd-sourced data, giving way to citizen science with many applications. With increasing “Big Data” projects, active partnerships between professional, amateur and data scientist communities are necessary. Innovative design, sustainability and evaluation of these projects is as important as the citizen science they generate.   This session invites papers from scientists, educators and as well as those who design, facilitate, evaluate or fund such programs. Topics may include methodology, applications of citizen science to enhancing outreach, transformative approaches to science education, lessons learned, and the future of citizen science.  Presentations are invited from all scientific disciplines: astronomy, planetary and space science, geology and geophysics, seismology, biogeoscience, atmosphere and ocean sciences.
