CycloneCenter Participation for January 2014

January saw more classifications than December, largely due to a resurgence of active classifiers. This month, baha23 stepped up and accomplished a whopping 3000+ classifications to lead the pack by a wide margin. There were also some surprises in the active user list. In September 2012, Atomic7732 was our top classifier in our first month, but had been relatively quiet since. In January, Atomic7732 returned to cyclone center and barely missed the top 10 by only 4 classifications!

January also saw four first-time top tenners: jasony23, sfrudy, user:”205400″, and Gemmabeta. Congratulations to all of you.

Also, for the monthly leaders, baha23 moved into 2nd place having been the monthly leader 3 times. baha23 is only 1 month behind bretarn, who has 4 months atop the monthly leader board.

We are grateful to both our longtime consistent scientists – like baha23 and bretarn – and are also very excited about new scientists like sfrudy and Gemmabeta.

For January 2014, we had 10,523 classifications of 87 storms from 651 citizen scientists.
