The database for the SecchiDisk.org project has now over 300 measurements (309 as of the 15th June) and so we’re starting to work on a paper to bring the data together and compare it to satellite imagery; once we have the first draft it will be shared for comment.
Great to see the map is starting to fill up with June uploads from DiveN60 Alaska, Nomadic Star, Pelican, R V Callista, Semper Fidelis and Toodle-oo! There’s now an online showcase for some of the photos taken at the Secchi Gallery
Thanks to everyone (including Ocean Breeze RT Bennan plus Cowal, R V Callista, RV.Pramong1 and R/V Urania) who is continuing to upload data and we look forward to seeing new contributors as people build and deploy their Secchi disks. We’re getting to the point where we’ll start to introduce a greater degree of interaction / viewing on the website.
Further data points are being uploaded to the database from the SecchiApp. Secchi depth of 9.5 m for the waters off the Isle of Arran (Scotland) uploaded by Ocean Breeze. Also, a great photo showing the ocean and beautiful scenery.
Secchi data has started to be uploaded to the database from the Secchi App… Our first marine measurements are from the Acqua Alta oceanographic tower of CNR ISMAR (uploaded photo shown below) and a Nayland college trip off the coast of New Zealand… Looking forward to more coming in…
Yesterday the Secchi was launched with a press release out to the media… Articles have started to appear, with one of the first being Practical Boat Owner. Interested seafarers can like the Facebook Page or follow the #secchidisk hashtag to learn more about the project, then start to build your Secchi disk ready for deployment!
