Description

The seven tracks make up an auditory display of the net flux of carbon dioxide between the ocean and the atmosphere. The seven 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 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. (https://datalab.marine.rutgers.edu/ooi-nuggets/co2-flux/)

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/

Notes

The sound design of absorption in data sonifications (tracks 2, 3, and 4) has been updated from a "slurping" parameter-controlled sound (version 2.0) to a synthetic filter parameter-controlled sound (version 3.0), based on user feedback.
