Ocean Noise Explorer

By Dr. Shima Abadi | Associate Professor in the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math | 2022-2023 Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellow

The overall goal of the Ocean Noise Explorer project was to leverage existing ocean instrumentations and datasets from the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) to create a publicly accessible educational website. The OOI is a large-scale project that provides a unique continuous observation of the ocean with recorded data using more than 800 instruments since 2015. In my research group, we have already pre-processed this rich dataset and have created an online platform for easy access to this dataset and visualizing different data types. This support enabled me to add an education and outreach component to this platform that helps students to learn ocean sciences by using real- world data. This platform contains different types of educational materials and significantly contributes to student learning and knowledge production in ocean sciences.
