We are seeking to work with talented scientists in any field that can come up with a better numerical approach to predict two oceanic state variables (Dissolved Inorganic Carbon (DIC) and Alkalinity (ALK)) that control carbon dioxide levels in the ocean.
Rewards & Prizes
We are excited to collaborate with the eventual winners to accelerate our collective knowledge about the potential threat of ocean hypercapnia. There are two different awards and prizes for those to participate.
1. The Peer Choice Award ($500)
Openness accelerates innovation and reproducibility. If you have a numerical approach or idea on how we can better predict ocean carbon dioxide levels using the existing global data-set, then simply write a short synopsis or upload a short video on your approach. The winner of the 'Peer Award' will be determined by an open vote of Thinkable members.
2. The Challenge Award ($3000 & co-authorship)
This will be awarded to the individual or team who beats our predictions for DIC and ALK by the largest margin (quantified by RSE). The winners of this award will have the option if they choose to become a co-author on the follow-up publication to our Nature paper and any future papers…
