Simple to measure water quality
Keep the EyeOnWater app handy, and you can contribute to the colour data with a snap of a photo. Your observations will help scientists evaluate water health along the way. To get a good quality water colour measurement, you should not be able to see the bottom of the river, lake or sea, and you should try and avoid other objects in the photo – like your feet! Try the quiz in the app, which will show you how to improve the quality of your photos for water colour estimation.
Expert friendly citizen science
On a mission? The EyeOnWater app lets you record additional metrics like Secchi disk depth, pH, and more. These metrics will increase the knowledge about our water health. We also ask if you can see any seagrass or plants.
