It seems that ICT for Development tools have yet to invade the marine biology field. We invite offline responses to anyone interested in helping set up a global working group which uses semantic web technologies, smart apps and digital dashboards to make information more accessible to all specialists and interested parties in the wider area of issues centering around marine and coral reef biology.

There is a severe lack of information on which tools and resources have
actually been used for addressing current and potential climate change
impacts on marine ecosystems and which of these tools and resources have
proven most helpful/effective. The EBM Tools Network, in collaboration with
OpenChannels..org, is working to address this information gap by conducting
a short survey of tools and resources that are being used or have been used
for developing or implementing actions to address current and potential
climate change impacts on marine ecosystems. We would appreciate it if you
would participate in this survey if you have been, or are currently
involved in, developing or implementing actions to address current and
potential climate change impacts on marine ecosystems. The survey should
take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the number of tools and
resources about which you provide information. We would appreciate
responses by October 31, 2013.

For this survey, we are interested in information about a broad range of
“tools and resources” including written guides, models, protocols,
replicable methodologies, computer software, apps, databases, and other
types of useful resources for conducting marine climate change adaptation

The information gathered in this survey will form a resource base that will
be shared with the broader marine community and will be extremely valuable
to others getting started in marine climate adaptation work. We greatly
appreciate your help with this effort. A summary of the results will be
published onOpenChannels.org and advertised through the EBM Tools Network
mailing list. The results will also be used to inform the work of select
projects such as the Reefs Tomorrow Initiative.

Please contact me at sarah_carr at natureserve.org if you have any questions
about the survey.

Thank you for your help!
