Future research platforms as data hubs in a connected world

Net Zero Oceanographic Capability Workshop 5


Thursday, 22nd April 2021




Given the serious and far reaching effects of climate change, it is important that the oceanographic community brings new technologies to bear on the current generation of carbon intensive research ships. Such advances in technology will generate increasing volumes of data and create new challenges around data management and the opportunities that this will bring.

Future low emission ships will be linked to researchers on land, and to autonomous vehicles at sea, through an integrated data environment that will include models and observations. This workshop forms part of the NZOC Future Data Ecosystems work package and will: examine trends across the whole data lifecycle, explore how data could be used to enable more intelligent operation of oceanographic platforms, seek to understand how the overlap in scientific and commercial interest could enhance the efficiency of data gathering and mitigate against obsolescence, and consider cybersecurity risks.
