The newly launched GrowApp allows students and citizens to make animations of trees, gardens and landscapes by taking pictures with their smartphone. The app directly transforms these pictures in a time lapse movie that shows changes over the seasons and even over the years. While having fun making an animation of their backyard, users help scientists better understand climate change impact on the environment.
The start and duration of the growing season in Europe has significantly been influenced by the increase of European temperature by 1.5 °C compared to pre-industrial levels. This conclusion can be drawn based on the analysis of hundreds of thousands of observations of flowering, leaf unfolding and leaf colouring done by volunteers from all over Europe. The flowering of 17 spring plants in Europe, for example, advanced with two weeks on average since 1982. In addition to these so-called phenological observations satellites track changes in the greenness of the land cover. However, up till now it remains a challenge to link field observations with satellite observations.
