Adrift by UTS School of Design
Adrift is an online Citizen Science project that enables participants to visualise the environmental conditions experienced by microscopic marine microbes as they are propelled around the globe by ocean currents. By launching virtual microbes in the ocean, participants track changes in salinity, nutrients and water temperature. This provides ocean scientists with critical information to help inform policy on climate change. Adrift is designed to engage a diversity of participants, enabling those who may not have expertise to explore and analyse ocean data.
