The Ocean Health Index team is proud to announce the launch of our redesigned OHI-Science.org website. OHI-Science.org is the primary resource for Ocean Health Index (OHI) scientific information, tools, and instruction. These resources can be used by anyone to lead independent OHI assessments, called OHI+ assessments.
Since the OHI framework was developed in 2012 (Halpern et al., 2012, Nature), eleven assessments have been completed, four of which were independent OHI+ assessments independently led by academic or government groups. The redesigned website incorporates knowledge and experience gained through these assessments to provide future groups with the best possible information and methodology for conducting an OHI+ assessment.
As the sister website to our main site, OHI-Science allows visitors to easily access our freely-available data and methods and explore completed and ongoing OHI assessments. New features include easy navigation and access to:
- Open-source methods and data products
- Current OHI and OHI+ assessments
- Instruction for the OHI+ assessment process
- OHI publications and documentation
- OHI+ community forum
This website is hosted by GitHub. Many thanks to Lauren Walker, an NCEAS-based designer and coder who redesigned our website with its beautiful new look.
