April is Citizen Science month and this year we have something special planned… Our first ever Raspberry Shake virtual “Movers & Shakers” meetup event!
Join us to discover how Raspberry Shake is bridging the gap between the citizen science and professional seismologist communities.
The Raspberry Shake community is growing which in turn means that our community seismic network has more seismographs on the map, helping contribute to faster and more accurate ground motion and earthquake detection.
So is the data from your Raspberry Shake really being used by the experts?
Our citizen science community of Shakers made the headlines last year as part of a research paper published in Science to examine the global quieting of our planet during the COVID 19 lockdown. Data from the Raspberry Shake network was heavily used in the study with 76 co-authors from around the world contributing to the paper, including both citizen and professional scientists (Lecocq, et al., 2020).
Our “Movers & Shakers” virtual meetup will hear from two of the authors of the paper featured in Science, Thomas Lecocq and Mark Vanstone. Join us as they explore how Raspberry Shakes are bridging the gap between citizen science and professional communities.
