Enhanced capability to monitor drought using citizen weather stations

Last week I presented some preliminary results of a project in a hydro-meteorology session of the European Geophysical Union (vEGU21) conference. In this project, we are assessing the value of citizen weather observations to monitor drought in here in the Netherlands (yes, it’s dry here too). I thought it would be nice to share these results and the idea of a “citizen science drought index” with a wider audience, so I recorded a voice-over-slides video that I am sharing here.
