Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
The Monterey Aquarium Research Institute (aka MBARI) is a non-profit oceanic research center in Monterey Bay, CA and one of the most famous in the world. At MBARI, scientists and engineers work together to develop new tools and methods for studying the ocean.
MBARI approached Make&Model with a twofold problem: broad public interest in the ocean is relatively small, and despite there being many videos, images, and corresponding data on marine life, there has yet to be a hub for this data. So MBARI launched FathomNet, an open sourced database for oceanic data where researchers, technologists, and the public could view, share, and download years of oceanic data.
