Explore the Sea Floor


Help out with marine research projects!
Identify kelp and sea urchins in images of the seafloor.

Explore the Seafloor is an online citizen science project undertaken by ABC Science in conjunction with the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS).

Throughout the month of August we’ll be asking for help with identifying kelp images of the seafloor. This job is normally done by research assistants and is time-consuming and laborious. In Explore the Seafloor we’ll be taking a crowd-sourcing approach to reduce this workload and ask regular folk to get involved and help the scientists with their research work.
