Citizen-Science for the Future: Advisory Case Studies From Around the Globe




The democratization of ocean observation has the potential to add millions of observations every day. 


Though not a solution for all ocean monitoring needs, citizen scientists offer compelling examples showcasing their ability to augment and enhance traditional research and monitoring. 

评论:augment = enhance?


Information they are providing is increasing the spatial and temporal frequency and duration of sampling, reducing time and labor costs for academic and government monitoring programs, providing hands-on STEM learning related to real-world issues and increasing public awareness and support for the scientific process. 



Examples provided here demonstrate the wide range of people who are already dramatically reducing gaps in our global observing network while at the same time providing unique opportunities to meaningfully engage in ocean observing and the research and conservation it supports. 


While there are still challenges to overcome before widespread inclusion in projects requiring scientific rigor, the growing organization of international citizen science associations is helping to reduce barriers. 

评论:helping reduce barriers. No need to have “to” after help (verb).


The case studies described support the idea that citizen scientists should be part of an effective global strategy for a sustained, multidisciplinary and integrated observing system.

评论:The case studies 后面不需要described


Example 1: Citizen Science for Climate Change and Biodiversity Observations

评论:Citizen Science没有“-”。作者有点“任性”。


Example 2: Ocean Microbiome and Microplastics Tracking by Citizen Oceanographers


Example 3: Encouraging Innovative Supplementary Data Gathering: An International Hydrographic Organization Crowdsourced Bathymetry Initiative



Example 4: 50,000 Citizen-Science Collected GPS Flood Extents Used to Validate a Street-Level Hydrodynamic Model Forecast of the 2017 King Tide in Hampton Roads, VA



Example 5: Citizen Scientists: An Underutilized Resource for the United States IOOS

评论:可以用underused resource.
