CycloneCenter Participation for December 2013

We’ve been looking at lots of numbers lately. In particular, we are preparing a paper for submission to a peer-reviewed journal and we are impressed by the performance of the classifications from you – the citizen scientists – and the amount of work accomplished since we started in September 2012. So we’d like to take a moment to recognize the citizen scientists that have helped us become a successful science project.

For December 2013, we had 5815 classifications of 93 storms from 208 citizen scientists.
