*This talk is part of the CROWDSOURCING track*

The Met Office has a long history of engaging and depending on citizens to support its science. For example, since the 1850’s the Met Office has coordinated the collection of marine observations from the both the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy to enable the highest quality forecasts in support of safety of life at sea.

This presentation will provide an overview of several citizen science initiatives in which the Met Office is involved, focusing on sharing lessons learned during the development and ongoing running of the award winning Weather Observations Website (WOW) which has received over 185 million global weather observations since its launch in 2011.
