ODOH breakfast: Sensor platforms with many opportunities
Thanks for a nice breakfast meeting!
We were 6 persons having our morning coffee at Nya Varvet and another 6 joining the video meeting. Picking up from Sept 29th, we talked at some length about opportunities (and challenges) around data from tagged animals and from sensors mounted on fishing gear/vessels. Take home messages:
- These data have huge potential to fill serious gaps in existing ocean monitoring programmes, where other and autonomous methods struggle. These gaps include shelf and coastal seas and marginal ice zones.
- The cost-benefit relation is very good!
- The infrastructure for collecting and distributing these data is rapidly expanding and maturing.
- Challenges include subsurface communication and integration into existing monitoring data flows.
Recording from the meeting.
We have gathered 4 presenters from the conference, who all talked about collecting ocean data from very interesting (unexpected?) platforms (please note that we will do only 1 minute reminders of each original presentation, and then we will go directly to discussions):
1. Tagging Tuna for data in Kattegatt and Skagerack (Andreas Sundelöf & Gustav Hellström, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences)
2. Tagging Elephant Seals for Data in the Southern Ocean (Fabien Roquet, University of Gothenburg)
3. Fishing for Data: Opportunities to fill gaps in ocean observation networks via collaboration with fishers (Cooper Van Vranken, Berring Data Collective)
4. Prelude to sailing ships: collection of wind data using LIDAR on operational shipping (Mikael Razola, Wallenius Marine)
Thank you all participants! Great to have you with us at the venue Nya Varvet in Gothenburg and all who joined online!
Recordings of the conference will be published soon.
