Annual Report 2018

Through four broad science themes, Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) supports research across physical, chemical, biological, and geological aspects of the ocean over long time periods. The scientific discoveries emerging from this research contribute to the global effort to provide evidence-based decision-making that will enable sustainable management of ocean resources.
ONC’s observatories provide a virtual, real-time connection to a diverse range of marine habitats and environments in the northeast Pacific and Arctic, from river deltas to mid-ocean ridges. Data streams from over 5000 sensors, monitoring conditions from the coast to beneath the ocean floor.

Data allows the science community to fulfill broad multi- and inter-disciplinary research objectives that inform decisions about climate change, earthquake and tsunami detection, marine safety, life in the ocean, and much more.
