Welcome to the Adrift project, a citizen science project that helps ocean scientists better understand the experiences of marine microbes.
This collaborative research project is hosted by UTS and funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (Inspiring Australia Initiative).
Visualised here are ocean temperature anomalies over the past century that fluctuate around a mean temperature of 22.2ºC. Warmer temperatures drive a brighter background and have an affect on the size of the plankton that float within it. Click/drag to add plankton to this changing ocean.
