New Website Invites Public to Help Identify Seafloor Life and Habitats

document Tools
Summary The public is invited to help identify objects they see in images of the seafloor through a new interactive website called “Seafloor Explorer.” The result of a unique collaboration between oceanographers studying seafloor habitats, Web programmers and social scientists, Seafloor Explorer (www.seafloorexplorer.org) launched last September 13.
Description The HabCam team hopes the Seafloor Explorer website will add to the growing confidence of this kind of carefully monitored and administered citizen science. “CSA set a precedent and found a way to take crowd-sourced data and produce a valid scientific product,” says Amber York, a HabCam researcher in Gallager’s Lab.
