Voice of the Oceans will examine the various levels of impact that the oceans as a whole are suffering. The goal is to collect scientific data using accessible technologies coupled with high quality technical analysis to update information on the state of the oceans.
VOICE OF THE OCEANS + UNIVERSITY OF SÃO PAULO
Voice of the Oceans Scientific has as its main partner the University of São Paulo (USP), which has consistently confirmed its outstanding position in some of the most important global reputation rankings, including the World Reputation Rankings of the British consultancy Times Higher Education and the Best Global Universities 2022 of the North American publisher US News.
Under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Alexander Turra, coordinator of the UNESCO Chair of Ocean Sustainability, the USP Oceanographic Institute is launching the Voz dos Oceanos initiative, which addresses the problem of marine litter on two fronts within the concept of Citizen Science:
- Litter monitoring program in collaboration with the community through a mobile application to record and share information analyzed by partner scientists.
- Monitoring of microplastics in marine organisms based on the analysis carried out by USP researchers of mussels and oysters purchased at sites along the Voz dos Oceanos route.
