CrowdWater: An App for Flood Research

UZH researchers and citizen scientists are collecting data on water levels of rivers and streams, as well as on soil moisture. An app makes it possible to capture hydrological data for any river or location in the world. The aim of the CrowdWater project, developed by doctoral candidates from the Department of Geography of the University of Zurich, is to improve water management and forecasts in regions with a sparse or inexistent network of conventional measurement stations.
