Hello Ocean: Sailor Scientist
Hello Ocean: Sailing Scientist is a global ocean acidification research project that engages recreational boaters as citizen scientists. Cruising sailors are provided with sensors to collect ocean chemistry data, which is then shared via the web in an open-sourced database. During the beta expedition in 2015 and early 2016 Hello Ocean tested the equipment, developed protocols for citizen science, and prepared an outreach campaign.
