With the CrowdWater Citizen Science app, you can observe rivers and collect hydrological data, including water level, streamflow and soil moisture data, as well as data about the dynamics of temporary streams, plastic pollution and general stream type data.

Better predicting of floods and droughts with Citizen Science

The project does not only look at the possibilities of collecting data but also at the value of this data for hydrological forecasts. The goal is to develop a cheap and easy data collection method that can be used to predict floods and low flow or droughts. The long-term aim of the project is to complement existing gauging station networks, especially in regions with a sparse measurement network, such as in developing countries.
