Sonifications of Oxygen and Temperature Data in the Ocean: Creating a ‘Data Stethoscope’

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

Mark Ballora will discuss a project he will be embarking on with Karen Wishner, professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island. Titled “Sonifications of Oxygen and Temperature Data in the Ocean: Creating a ‘Data Stethoscope’ to Detect the Ocean’s Vital Signs,” the work will involve the creation of a “data stethoscope” to translate into sound measurements of temperature, oxygen, and biomass collected from the ocean’s depths. The sonifications may reveal interactions between biological and physical properties of the ocean’s oxygen minimum zones that are not evident through visual graphs alone.
