It’s officially summer, and that means it’s time for some summer weekend reading!
Here are a few suggestions that popped up in my inbox and blog feed over the past few weeks. The topics range from undergraduate research to ocean data, visualization and the OOI – all things I know our community loves to learn about.
- EOS: How COVID-19 Is Affecting Undergraduate Research Experiences
- Storytelling with Data: so many little decisions – Small choices in graph design have a big impact on your graph’s overall readability.
- Nature: Ocean data need a sea change to help navigate the warming world – There’s lots of ocean data out there, but it’s getting harder to access.
- NOAA Research: NOAA collects a lot of data on the ocean. Here are 4 ways we use it. – A nice overview of how NOAA uses buoys, drifters and floats to conduct research.
- OOI: Return to Sea in the COVID-19 era – Find out how the OOI team adapted their recent cruise to the Pioneer Array.
- OOI: COVID-prevention, Quarantine, and Collaboration: Endurance Array 13 is Ready to Go – And check out their plans for the upcoming cruise to the Endurance Array
And here are a few videos to check out.
- OOI – Access the Ocean – A good intro to the OOI, especially if you’re new to the project.
- OOI Endurance Array Spring 2019 Deployment – See how a Pioneer mooring and benthic node are deployed.
- John Delaney TED Talk – Wiring an interactive ocean – Travel back to the early days of the OOI, and see this great talk by Dr. Delaney on the future of oceanography and the OOI.
If you know of a good article or video (ocean related or just for fun), please feel free to share it with me @visualocean.
