Delft Measures Rain

As part of the Citizen Science Platform WaterLab at the Delft University of Technology, we helped organize and develop the research on precipitation variation in the city of Delft using citizen science methodologies in 2020 and 2021.

95 participants across Delft have gotten into action. Together they submitted 1991 measurements between July 17 and September 14 2020. Results of the project can be found in this infographic.

In 2021, 105 citizens of Delft have gathered 5128 rain measurements over a three-month period (1st August-31st October)! The data until September 17th has been analyzed by two TU Delft students, Karen Chen and Rafaël van Beek. The results look very promising and you can find a summary of them in this infographic. Additionally, we organized a webinar on November 24th, during which Karen and Rafaël have presented their results. You can find their presentations here (in Dutch) Karen and Rafael.

We are currently discussing the continuation of the project for a third year, and perhaps making it a yearly endeavor. Interested in partnering or in the data? Get in contact with us by sending an email to @sandra.
