Fourth 'IMOS in MOcean' video – How can I get ocean data?

The 4th video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series shows how to access the diverse collections of ocean data from IMOS and other sources, freely and easily.

Meet the people behind the variety of marine observations that make up the IMOS data collection. Today, IMOS introduces the fourth in our series of videos called 'IMOS in MOcean'.

Marine data and information are the main products of IMOS. The Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN) provides an online portal for accessing the large and diverse collection of IMOS data and ocean data from other sources.

Scientists, managers and the public can access desired data collections for free – and it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

Other videos currently in various stages of production are:

  • IMOS: an overview – takes a step back and explains what IMOS is about and why time-series observations are so important
  • OceanCurrent – the people behind the valuable up-to-date ocean maps
  • Shark movements – how tracking sharks has revealed startling new insights into their behaviour
  • Southern Ocean and Climate – shows how processes in the Southern Ocean play a key role in global climate
  • Antarctic glacial melting – Data from IMOS funded moorings off the Totten and Mertz glaciers show that warm water beneath the ice shelf is causing ice loss.

A number of other videos are being planned so that the collection of videos will eventually represent the diversity of data collections and collectors, partners and end-users.

Keep an eye out for future episodes and do let us know if you have an idea for a new video.
