For the week of 22 July 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
PLoS ONE has published a new paper, On the Potential of Surfers to Monitor Environmental Indicators in the Coastal Zone. The authors equipped a recreational surfer in the southwest UK with a GPS and temperature sensor to measure sea-surface temperature. They estimate upwards of 40 million measurements could be recorded per year if the UK surfing community was actively engaged in citizen science activities. You may download the full-text using the link above.
