Nord University – Norway
For the Ocean Decade, Nord University will consolidate and expand its observations on marine biodiversity in a variety of habitats using conventional and new technologies, and publish this data online through the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS) and other open access platforms for use by researchers and citizens.
These include monitoring of zooplankton and benthos, collaboration with marineGEO, and new initiatives using webcams, eDNA and citizen science to increase availability of quality assured data and engagement with the public.
