A Seaweek lecture by Dr Laura Jordan-Smith, Marine Biologist, co-founder of World Below the Waves.
Admission: Gold coin donation
Using a simple “eOceans” mobile phone application, New Zealanders now have the opportunity to join a global science initiative to help track the health of the world’s oceans and marine life. Citizen scientists are being encouraged to record observations of human and animal activities whenever they are in, on or close to the ocean. Lead researchers will then collate and analyse data collected from around the world to identify local and global trends related to changes in ocean activity.
In New Zealand, eOceans is represented and championed by Dr Laura Jordan-Smith. Laura will describe the eOceans platform and mobile app, give us a demonstration, and discuss the power of citizen-sourced data for global ecological research.
Laura completed her PhD at UCLA in 2008 and has taught marine science courses at universities and laboratories in USA and abroad. She helped establish the collective World Below the Waves to educate and enthuse the public about the diverse and beautiful life that exists in the sea. Laura moved to Auckland in 2019.
