The Ocean Sampling Day (OSD) is a simultaneous worldwide research campaign where marine biologists around the globe participate in sampling of the world’s Oceans to produce contextual genomic data.

Through Marine Biodiversity Observation Networks (MBONs) collecting cumulative samples, related in time, space and environmental parameters, researchers can gain invaluable insights into the marine environment, including insights into the changes in biodiversity as a result of climate change and the introduction of non-native species by shipping, etc.

The Sampling Protocols and Metadata are available to download here.
