Citizen Science: Seafloor Explorer

Postby owlice » Thu Sep 13, 2012 4:35 pm

Help explore the ocean floor.

The HabCam team and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution need your help!

Identify species and ground cover in images of the seafloor, and help create a library of seafloor life in the habitats along the northeast continental shelf.

I really enjoy zoning out on this now and then...
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

I've never had of this project before but it's quite interesting. They have a lot of confidence in people though, I guess there are many who just put in nonsense information just to mess with the scientists...
@neufer: I must admit that your picture is a lot more fun :) I used to be a huge spongebob fan and even had a copy of this made by an online printing site :oops:
