Ocean Health Index - Science

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 OceanHealthIndex.orgOHI-Science.org 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

OHI-Science.org is a platform for tools used and developed by a very active open science and OHI+ community, and will be constantly updated. To receive updates, please email info@ohi-science.org or follow us on Twitter: @ohiscience.
