RMIT University brings Citizen Science Project to Bayswater
RMIT University researchers engaged City of Bayswater residents in measuring climate in the Bayswater wetlands area as part its Citizen Science Project this week.
Wanted: citizen climate scientists for nationwide study
If you've ever fancied yourself as an amateur climate scientist, you now have an opportunity to participate in an Australia-wide micro-climate study.
People-powered research has evolved from counting frogs and stars to hi-tech projects that are boosting our understanding of biodiversity, etymology and the origins of the universe. Citizen scientists are having a big impact.
Citizen scientists to help map urban heat
Residents can arm themselves with heat sensors as part of an arsenal of scientific tools to help map Campbelltown’s heat levels, in an interactive community first that will compare data from 21 other councils across Australia.
JOIN A STUDY ON EXTREME HEAT IN YARRA
We're looking for 100 enthusiastic people to become citizen scientists and join world renowned universities RMIT and UNSW, in their research of urban heat and local climate change to help better understand how we can reduce extreme heat and adapt.
Virtual Centre for Climate Change Innovation
The Virtual Centre for Climate Change Innovation (VCCCI) has been established to strengthen Victoria’s role as a climate change leader. The Virtual Centre will foster innovative approaches and collaboration between businesses, industry, researchers and government to help Victoria reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change.
