In this Oceanography section, contributing authors share all of the relevant information on a homemade sensor or instrument so that others can build, or build upon, it. The short articles also showcase how this technology was used successfully in the field.


Oceanography guest editors Melissa Omand and Emmanuel Boss are seeking contributions to DIY Oceanography. Contributions should include a list of the materials and costs, instructions on how to build, and any blueprints and codes (those could be deposited elsewhere). See Oceanography’s Author Guidelines page or detailed information on submission requirements.
