Citizen science in seismology

Session ID#: 26316

Session Description:
Citizen science enables public participants to make a direct contribution to seismological research, increase their scientific understanding and immerse themselves deeply afield in learning about earthquakes. In this session, we would like to invite contributions from citizen science projects in seismology. We welcome studies that related but not limited to engage the public in gathering or obtaining insights from various earthquake observations, such as sensors, social network, internet-based information and others. Public educations about learning various aspects of earthquakes through novel ways are also encouraged. We hope to show citizen science projects play an important role in seismology and encourage discussions of better ways to engage and educate public about earthquake science.
