Help researchers calibrate accuracy of snow measurement tools by tweeting snow depth.

When snow starts to fall, it’s usually the first thing people bring up in small talk conversation. Why not also tweet about it and help cryosphere researchers at the University of Waterloo? Through the Snow Tweets project, you can broadcast your snow depth measurements to the Twittersphere, so researchers and anybody who is interested, can know how much snow fell in your location. The data is recorded in the Snow Tweets database in near real time, and they are especially interested in using web-based digital technologies to map snow data. Right now, they use Twitter, but the project is in it’s early stages of development and this could grow into something much bigger. To view the snow depth measurements from tweets, their data visualization tool called Snowbird lets you explore the reported snow depths around the globe. So, if you’re already a weather watching volunteer through projects such as CoCoRaHS or SKYWARN, what’s one little tweet more to a citizen science “pro” like you?
