Inner Space Center

ISC Projects

Telepresence

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer

  • The Inner Space Center is the streaming and quality control provider for the live ROV camera feeds.
  • The ISC maintains the full recordings of the ROV dives and hosts the data and video distribution servers.

E/V Nautilus and Nautilus Live

  • The Inner Space Center is the streaming and quality control provider for the live ROV camera feeds.
  • The ISC maintains the archive of all E/V Nautilus video and data, and is the distributor of video and data to local and foreign scientists.

Exploration Now

  • The Inner Space Center houses Exploration Now's operations in its studio and production facility.
  • The ISC maintains archives of produced video content and recordings of live programs.
  • The ISC assists with studio tech services and live streaming to remote sites, such as aquariums and classrooms.

The Unknown Ocean

  • The Unknown Ocean: Exploring Inner Space project has created educational and informational programming about deep-sea exploration. This project, which is funded by the NOAA Office of Education, has created exciting video productions suited for the public and aquarium audiences in particular.
  • The Unknown Ocean program is available as a live interaction with accompanying footage, or as an interactive display kiosk that also features a live video link to the Inner Space Center. Such kiosks are available in various locations such as Mystic Aquarium and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

UNOLS

  • The Inner Space Center is slated to be the streaming service provider for multiple UNOLS science vessels.

OceansLIVE

  • OceansLIVE is a partnership between NOAA NMS, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, and the Inner Space Center. The ISC provides streaming services for live events and maintains the organization website.

 

Education

National COSEE Network

  • Since 2002, the National COSEE Network has worked with the ocean science research and education communities to build capacity for educating students, educators, the public, and the next generation of ocean scientists and to broaden the impacts of ocean sciences research. COSEE is now moving forward as an independent consortium with unique and proven services.

Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) Alliance

  • The National Science Foundation (NSF) CCEP Alliance is a national network of regionally or thematically based partnerships devoted to increasing the development and use of effective, high quality educational resources and programs related to the science of climate change and its impacts. The Alliance Office, located at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, serves as the hub for the CCEP program. It facilitates communication among the CCEP projects, enables and nurtures cross-project coordination and collaboration, and supports the dissemination of Alliance resources. The CCEP Alliance Office also fosters communication with the larger climate change education community.

Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS)

  • The Discovery of Sound in the Sea website will introduce the science of sound in the ocean and how marine animals and people use sound in the ocean. There are several major sections on the site such as The Science of Sound in the Sea, People and Sound in the Sea, and Animals and Sound in the Sea. The site's Audio Gallery is a fascinating place to listen to underwater sounds created by marine animals, human activities, and natural phenomena such as lightning, earthquakes, and rain. The information on the Discovery of Sound in the Sea is based on published scientific research and has gone through a thorough peer review by a panel of scientific experts.

Hurricanes: Science and Society

  • The Hurricanes: Science and Society website and associated educational resources provide information on the science of hurricanes, methods of observing hurricanes, modeling and forecasting of hurricanes, how hurricanes impact society, and how people and communities can prepare for and mitigate the impacts of hurricanes. There is also a hurricane history interactive, hurricane case studies, and a special section for educators. The information on the Hurricane: Science and Society is based on published scientific research and is a result of the Hurricanes: Science and Society project. All content has undergone thorough peer review by a panel of scientific experts.

Marine Technology for Teachers and Students (MaTTS)

  • The Marine Technology for Teachers and Students (MaTTS) Project, being conducted by the University of Rhode Island (URI) Graduate School of Oceanography and the University of Connecticut, provides a year-long opportunity for Rhode Island and Connecticut teachers and students to interact with cutting edge research technologies related to exploring the global ocean. The program will help to develop teacher and student leaders, introduce students to marine career opportunities, and provide students with an exciting summer intensive in-residence at the URI Inner Space Center, a national facility for ocean exploration.
