5 exciting projects for volunteer scientists
Thanks to modern technologies, all interested can process data and look for information important for science.
This idea is already working: around the world, hundreds of thousands of volunteer researchers are contributing to space exploration, the fight against cancer, the protection of wild animals and environmental activities, writes Share America.
To join this process, you may need to learn a bit - online. However, in most cases, all you need is a computer or smartphone and the willingness to spend some free time.
You are waiting for exciting research, new understanding of scientific subjects, meeting with other volunteers and even leading scientific experts.
Five exciting projects for those who want to test themselves in research work:
Find a planet outside the solar system. It is necessary to study data from the NASA Kepler space telescope, analyze the light patterns and time series, and note the changes in the brightness of stars. In addition to the planets already found by 1200 volunteers, you can open your own.
Watch for tropical cyclones and help climate scientists predict their behavior. Categorize and describe infrared satellite images. This will contribute to a more accurate prediction of the intensity of impending hurricanes.
Watch the birds at your place of residence and take part in the “World Census of Birds”. Together with scientists, you can better understand where birds flock and how they migrate. Your task is to count the number of birds of various species that you see next to your home. In 2016 alone, volunteer ornithologists from more than 130 countries of the world registered 5689 bird species.
Dive deep into the ocean to help ichthyologists understand how plankton lives. You will classify underwater images. Tiny marine organisms will tell a lot about the ecological health of the ocean.
Tiny particles of interstellar dust were first delivered to Earth in the capsule of the Stardust spacecraft. Look for her traces in photos from space. If you find a particle, you can give it a name, and it will be used in scientific papers on this topic.
