Description CrowdHydrology is an experiment currently being run by Dr. Chris Lowry at the University at Buffalo Department of Geology. Their goal is to develop innovative methods to collect spatially distributed hydrologic data.

They aim to create freely available data on stream stage in a simple and inexpensive way. They do this through the use of “crowd sourcing”, which means they gather information on stream stage (water levels) from anyone willing to send them a text message of the water levels at their local stream. These data are then available for anyone to then use from Universities to Elementary schools.
