The Earth Institute presents the second in the Smartphone Apps for Citizen Scientists Workshop Series.

Join us for the second in the series on Environmental Apps for Citizen Scientists, Water Contaminants. Presentations include:
Diana Eddowes, FreshWater Watch: Smart technologies helping global communities monitor their environment
John Feighery, The mWater Surveyor Platform and Mobile App
Samuel Janis, Environmental Monitoring in the Age of the App; Building a Networked Solution for Middle School Kids
Karen Pagliaro-Meyer, What you need to know about Privacy
Alexander van Geen, Disseminating well-water quality data with an app while respecting privacy: Arsenic in New Jersey and Bangladesh

Smartphones are revolutionizing the collection and sharing of environmental data, but their potential as tools for citizen science is vastly under-utilized. This series will examine a range of topics including the underlying science and technical development, as well as the legal and privacy concerns of data collection and dissemination, and the implications for environmental justice and regulations enforcement. Each workshop will cover a different scientific topic from airborne contaminants to soil and water and feature speakers leading the field from the researchers behind the science to the users in our communities.

RSVP required. Open to the public. Photo ID required for building access. The next workshop will take place on February 16, 2015.
