IYS Seminar Series- Seminar 5: Open ocean to open source: The power of data in a rapidly changing world
Ocean data reside in disaggregated data sets that range from spreadsheets on an individual’s computer to corporate mainframe databases. Clues and answers to large questions lie in composite or connected data. This is one of the greatest impediments to ocean research. Data mobilization efforts are needed to effectively discover and synthesize data and to connect people studying similar topics around the world. The Hakai Institute is helping lead ocean data mobilization efforts in Canada and during this seminar they will discuss the power of open-source data, their efforts in mobilizing IYS salmon ocean ecology data, and lead a discussion on the benefits of data mobilization and how to overcome impediments.
