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.
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?
- We will be at Kristineberg marine research station.
- Bring warm clothes and and shoes! We will go on research vessel Alice.
- There will be opportunities to stay over at the station, both before and after. Contact SCOOT’s coordinator if you are interested.
