CoCoRaHS Supports AIR Citizen Science Network

The Agroclimate Impact Reporter (AIR) is an online citizen science application designed for the collection and reporting of weather and climate impacts on farm operations across Canada. AIR, available online at www.agr.gc.ca/air, produces a live impact map and monthly maps using the data collected through its citizen science network. The information in these maps enables producers, scientists and decision makers to better understand the local and regional effects of agroclimate conditions and identify emerging risks to the broader agriculture sector. To check out the AIR products, submit an impact or to join the network head to the AIR website (www.agr.gc.ca/air) or contact nais-snia@agr.gc.ca
