Workshop – Technology for marine citizen science

December 16 @ 09:00 - 16:00

This is an event under the banner of ODOH – Ocean Data for Ocean Health. ODOH is a collaboration between Maritime Cluster of Western Sweden, Ocean Data Factory Sweden, SCOOT and Swedish Maritime Technology Forum.

Workshop scope

We will demonstrate a sample of ocean sensors and apps, with relevance for citizen science.

  • Fishing for data, by Berring Data Collective and SMHI. Cooper van Vranken demonstrates.
  • Simple ocean current logger, by Deepoid AB. Anders Brodin demonstrates.
  • Sailing4science , by GU and others. Martin Hassellöv demonstrates.
  • EyeOnWater, an app for observing ocean color, by MARIS and others. Patrick Gorringe demonstrates.
  • Algal Blooms Sweden, an app/protocol for observing algal blooms, by Maranics AB. Ana Tronholm demonstrates.

We will discuss opportunities and challenges, also beyond the technical aspects.

  • The field is opening, knowledge about the ocean can be created by many. By who? For whom?
  • This brave new world will not emerge simply because it is technically and economically possible. How do we engage many?
