The information is human-made-through-ingenuity as well as curiosity and the desire to learn have spread all over the world, and have created the immense ocean’s resources that have been a source of inaccessibility, available to be used and observed. The quantity of important ocean science data–Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs) including CO 2 concentration ,water temperature and salinity, pressure, and acidity–have increased dramatically in recent times in both volume and the quality. In order to prove the trend an article from the World Economic Forum states that scientists have collected more ocean data cumulatively in the period 2015-2017 than they did in the entire previous decade together.
But there’s much to learn before the ocean is mainstream. As unbelievable as it sounds however, we have greater about topography on Mars as we know about the ocean floor on Earth of which the majority is unexplored until today. This all points to an urgent need to increase awareness of the ocean as well as to ensure that financing for ocean-related projects as well as to pursue international collaborations. In this regard the blog below provides an overview of what’s currently being done to help to strengthen and enhance the ocean data gathering landscapewhich includes initiatives such as the participation of scientists from the public and the participation from the business sector the collection of ocean data.
