Citizen Science

With the worldwide spread of home computers and smart phones connected to the Internet, Citizen Science is blossoming today and making an important contribution to a diverse array of sciences. We can expect that the contribution of Citizen Science will become even greater in the near future - perhaps with the advent of a 'weather-station-on-a-chip' that may be as much a part of the home PC and cell phone of the future as the camera lens is today!
