We are happy to invite you to join the Hackathon on generating and exploring ideas for developing a Global Ocean Oxygen Database and ATlas (GO2DAT) from 2 to 5 May 2022 organized by the Ocean Decade Programme 'Global Ocean Oxygen Decade' (GOOD). Develop as a team a prototype in 48 hours non-stop time and think about its use, using various digital data related to ocean oxygen. The Hackathon is a Satellite Event contributing to the International Digital Twins of the Ocean Summit (4-5 May 2022).
More information and the link for the registration of your team for the Hackathon are available here. Teams can apply for tackling only one challenge or several challenges with their envisioned prototypes. The registration process will end on 22 April 2022.
- Brings together professionals and students who can enrich their practices and their networks.
- Encourages the building of multidisciplinary teams that combine their knowledge, talent and creativity to design solutions based on science and technological innovation.
- Is an opportunity to support ideas for developing a Global Ocean Oxygen Database and ATlas.
Challenges GO2DAT-Hackathon 2022
The Hackathon 2022 will be a step towards to the improvement of models and data sciences as basis for Digital Twins. A fundamental component of Digital Twins is the value added to observations through predictive and data-driven modelling to create information about the future that meets the users’ needs. Thus, the following challenges shall be addressed and solved by the teams who will apply for their Hackathon participation:
- Data Exploitation: Fully exploit data of (new) observing platforms with oxygen sensors to enhance monitoring and prediction capacities of ocean oxygen on coastal, regional and global scales.
- Quality Standards and O2 Global Data Assembly Centre (GDAC): An O2 GDAC receives and assembles marine O2 data and metadata from the many data streams, coming from different types of observation platforms, that are part of the Hackathon. Methodologies are needed for checking consistency within and across platforms, identify duplicates, make sure that the data are quality controlled according to standards and methods, provide feedback to the source of data regarding quality issues, make data accessible and metadata available through the envisioned GO2DAT data portal.
- Integrating Coastal Ocean Data in GO2DAT: The open data sharing concept needs to be advanced in support of coastal communities and, particularly, from National Ocean Data Centers and national and local organizations funding monitoring programs. With the existing services to facilitate and streamline the ingestion of coastal data the Hackathon teams shall investigate opportunities for easy integrations and showcasing the value added by these data to all data providers.
The resultant prototypes will enhance the value of a marine oxygen database, which is needed for developing and improving models and information products for decision-making processes. Therefore, the winning teams will present their results virtually at the 53rd International Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics / 3rd GO2NE Oxygen Conference which is taking place from 16 to 20 May 2022.
We are looking forward to your applications,
Your GOOD Team
