CycloneCenter Participation for April 2014

This month, we are naming the monthly award for the top classifier as the “Baja award” in honor of our consistent participant baha23 and retiring the name in recognition of the consistent contribution to the project from the monthly stat board (so that others can also be recognized for their effort). Likewise, the overall project activity list is now the “Bretarn board” in honor of our longtime contributor, bretarn (who also was our 300,000th classification).

Question of the Month: What is the best time to classify storms? Do you classify during your downtime? Answer in the comments below.

For March 2014, we had 7,964 classifications of 364 storms from 254 citizen scientists.

Postscript

Did you notice that peterthorne moved up a spot on the all time list. It turns out that work travel is a great time to classify storms. So why not use Airport wifi to classify storms while waiting in the airport??

Also, what do you think of the Baja award?
