Can we predict disasters such as drought, crop failures or floods? What data and technologies are needed and how can you help researchers?
The question of predicting periods of drought and flooding is becoming increasingly important in light of global warming and its consequences. This prediction is the focus of the CrowdWater project. As water levels are constantly changing - visibly on riverbanks, and observably in soil moisture - research needs as many attentive eyes as possible.
