This made me think of another example of Citizen Science: the Quake-Catcher
Network

http://qcn.caltech.edu/ [2]

Thousands of earthquake sensors have been distributed world-wide and are
connected via USB to PC's that are left on 24/7. Whenever a shock is felt it
sends the data to Caltech.

In addition when registering the site a report goes in from the sensor
location about type of construction in the building etc so a more detailed
pattern can emerge about building materials that should be used in earthquake
prone areas.
