Ocean of Data Challenge: Coastal Communities and Climate Change

February 8 - February 15

COVE and DeepSense with special guest Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) are hosting the second Ocean Data Challenge. This free event will span two evenings and begins on February 8th (6 pm) with an introduction to the Challenge, presentations from experts, and the chance to ask questions to help idea exploration. The Challenge concludes one week later, on February 15th with presentations from participants to our panel of judges.

This challenge allows you to work at your own pace to explore ways to learn about ocean data, meet others with the same interests and bring together unique skills to create a team. This is a fantastic way to show off your design, programming or other talents. Not to mention more than $2,000 in prizes!

The challenge is broken down into three Challenge Streams: Under the Water, On the Water, and Around the Water. Individuals and teams will be asked to choose one stream and provide interdisciplinary ideas for helping understand the coastal community impacts. Each stream can be used to explore different types of data, for example: “Under the Water” can explore ocean compensation (pollutants, algal blooms), “On the Water” can include storm surges and the water level rises and “Around the Water” can explore coastline erosion and flooding.
