Description

The nine tracks make up an auditory display of the daily vertical migration of zooplankton off the coast of Oregon. The tracks in the auditory display are comprised of data sonifications and contextual audio supports (dialogue, auditory icons, and music). You may listen online here.

The ocean data comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) and the display is based on the OOI Nugget developed by Dr. Leslie Smith and Dr. Lori Garzio. Please note that there is no track 1B in this version. We removed track 1B in order to reduce redundancy in the display. 

The “Accessible Oceans” AISL Pilots and Feasibility study aims to inclusively design auditory displays that support the perception and understanding of ocean data in informal learning environments (ILEs). More can be found on the project website: https://accessibleoceans.whoi.edu/
