237: Citizen Science

"Citizen Science" is a relatively new term used to describe non-specialist research carried out by pioneering teams of private individuals, foundations and organizations utilizing the power of the internet to collaborate around the globe. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will outline a number of innovative projects and a way in which anyone can collect data and conduct research using sophisticated yet affordable submersible equipment. He'll suggest that the ever-increasing interest in robotics amongst students young and old offers real potential for future ocean science.
