Ocearch:大白鲨研究基金会是一个致力于全球大白鲨研究的非营利机构,大部分人肯定不想与大白鲨面对面接触,但对Ocearch研究团队的科学家来说,这就是他们的工作内容。科学家将有15分钟的时间在甲板上对大白鲨进行12项检查。

OCEARCH是开源研究的领导者,通过实时跟踪全球鲨鱼的数据并共享给各国的研究机构,OCEARCH迄今已经发布了32篇研究论文,OCEARCH拥有自己的探险队,在这里你可以浏览到他们的工作图片,绝对是你没有看到过的内容,想要了解自然科学中的奥秘就需要我们来关注这类站点了。

OCEARCH is a non-profit organization with a global reach for unprecedented research on great white sharks and other large apex predators. In a collaborative environment established by Founding Chairman and Expedition Leader Chris Fischer, OCEARCH enables leading researchers and institutions to generate previously unattainable data on the movement, biology and health of sharks to protect their future while enhancing public safety and education.

OCEARCH is a leader in open source research, sharing data in near-real time for free through the Global Shark Tracker, enabling students and the public to learn alongside PhDs. The Landry’s-developed STEM Education Curriculum, based on the Global Shark Tracker and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), is being launched for grades 6-8 in the fall of 2013 nationwide.

Over 50 researchers from more than 20 institutions have collaborated with OCEARCH to date with over three dozen research papers in process or completed. Research expeditions are conducted worldwide aboard the M/V OCEARCH, which serves as both a mothership and at-sea laboratory. Utilizing a custom 75,000 lb. capacity hydraulic platform designed to safely lift mature sharks for access by a multi-disciplined research team, up to 12 studies are conducted in approximately 15 minutes on a live mature shark. Powered by five Cat engines, the M/V OCEARCH is capable of Global Circumnavigation.

OCEARCH expeditions – through the support of Caterpillar and other partners such as Costa, Yeti, Yamaha, Contender, SAFE boats and Mustad – generate satellite tracks and other forms of data for sharks, with planned expansion to other species in the future. Seventeen research expeditions have been conducted to date, with seven more scheduled through the end of 2015.
