In late April Ocean Networks Canada embarks on a series of maintenance cruises to service both the VENUS and NEPTUNE cabled observatories. Over the next 2 months, we’ll execute 3 of our 8 2013 expeditions, including two back-to-back cruises on the CCGS John P. Tully (April-May) servicing facilities first in the Salish Sea (VENUS) and then off-shore at Folger Passage and Barkley Canyon (NEPTUNE).
