I always like to let my students know how their REAL data is being used by REAL scientists. I also like to arrange video conference or Skype meetings with scientists from other citizen science programs I use in my classroom.
I didn't know your network has been online since 2012. I used to send aurora data into another site out of University of Alaska, Fairbanks, I think.
Of course, a great thing to tell your students, real life applications. These crowd-sourced reports serve as ground truth observations and help validate the predictions by aurora forecast models such as OVATION (used by NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center.) Your reports will help Aurorasaurus to significantly improve tracking the current location of the aurora by documenting the “view line”, that is the furthest equatorward extent of the visible aurora. Predicting the aurora accurately is also important for scientists to learn about the geomagnetic storms that often lead to auroras and other space weather threats.
Are you asking if you can arrange a skype call with members of the Aurorasaurus team? If so please let us know and we can try to set something up :)
