Sound is omnipresent in the ocean. Human-induced noise has the potential to affect marine life. After the global recession in 2008, the ocean became quieter as shipping declined. Off the coast of Southern California, for example, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography found that noise amplitudes measured from 2007-2010 were lowered by 70 percent with […]
“Just like lightning,” in one-minute presentations, 15 scientists shared amazing ways they are using OOI data in scientific investigations and in the classroom. This round of lightning talks capped the Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board’s (OOIFB) Town Hall at the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting on 20 February, demonstrating the multiple and creative ways OOI data […]
“I wanted to study the ocean’s role in climate and how it takes carbon out of the atmosphere,” says Palevsky. “My goal was to look at the balance between biological, physical, and chemical processes and how they allow the ocean to take up carbon.”
“The size and complexity of ocean data is growing beyond the capacity of what one person and one computer can handle. We need to be thinking of collaborative, cloud-based tools to really explore the capacity of these data.” Friedrich Knuth, Cabled Array Hackweek organizer
Data from the OOI Southern Ocean Array Surface Mooring have been integrated into the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Telecommunication System, making these data more easily accessible for weather forecasters and modelers.
A new computer vision routine, developed by Aaron Marburg at UW-APL and aided by Tim Crone at LDEO and Friedrich Knuth at Rutgers, is now able to correctly identify and tag scenes of scientific interest in the CAMHD video stream. These scenes were previously being manually identified by students at Rutgers University, a process which […]
On August 21, the path of totality of the “Eclipse Across America” will pass directly over two OOI Coastal Endurance Array Surface Moorings. These moorings will “see” the eclipse minutes before it is seen from the mainland.
The Axial Seamount Biology Catalog is a collection of stunning video and still imagery obtained during the Construction and Operation and Maintenance phases of the OOI Cabled Array spanning 2011 to 2016. The catalog currently contains 39 unique faunal entries, 63 videos, and 62 images.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution recently published a video highlighting how data from the Pioneer Array is helping research explore life on the Continental Shelf off the coast of New England. Check out the full story here.
Undergraduate students at Rutgers University have used still frames extracted from the HD Video camera (CAMHD) to compile time-lapse videos of the hydrothermal vent, under the direction of the OOI Data Team. There are 7 biological scenes of interest, captured during the pan/zoom routine of each video. The students are helping produce metadata by time-stamping […]
