MyOSD 2015

The Ocean Sampling Day (OSD) is a global scientific campaign to analyse marine microbes biodiversity and function, taking place during the solstice on June 21st. Citizens have being involved through the MyOSD initiative, collecting important environmental data which will help the scientist to get a better understanding of the world’s oceans. The OSD 2014 involved more than 150 scientific teams from all continents ranging from subtropical waters in Hawaii to extreme environments such as the Fram Strait in the Antarctic Ocean.

On this day, more than 600 people all around the world took water samples from the ocean in order to identify the microbes in it, 20% of them were citizen scientists.
