VLINDER For Citizens
Although the VLINDER network is mainly based on a collaboration between researchers and high schools, the project also offers interesting possibilities for citizens.
The VLINDER network collects data to gain insight into local weather differences and their link with land use. To do so researchers are monitoring meteorological parameters in very diverse landscapes spread over Flanders and Brussels.
The resulting observations can be found in realtime online and everyone interested can study the data. Did you prepare an interesting analysis based on VLINDER measurements of an extreme weather event (e.g. heavy thunderstorm, heatwave,…), did you found an interesting relation between land use and climate,… please share this with us via mail. Of course you can also simply follow the results of the project on our newspage.
During 2020 a number of VLINDER events will be organized. Such events will take place at schools who are responsible for a VLINDER weather station. The outline of these evenings will consist of some short lectures on the VLINDER project (both by students and scientists). Apart from the VLINDER lectures we will also invite an expert from a broader range of topics ( (weather, climate, atmosphere, citizen science,…). These events will be free and open to anyone interested. Keep on eye on the agenda for a VLINDER event in your region.
