Citizen science

Citizen science - the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists.

The WRO is teaming up with Deltares and IBM to roll-out a cellpone app-based water quality tool that can be used by researchers, water managers and citizen scientists to monitor salinity, nitrates and phosphates - check out the Aquality app  (formerly known as the NitrateApp)

It can also be used by farmers to test nitrate levels in the topsoil, potentially leading to savings in fertiliser.
