The University of Victoria’s Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), was funded to partner with the University of Manitoba to develop, install and maintain the cabled estuary observatory component of a new Churchill Marine Observatory (CMO) in Hudson Bay.
The collaboration builds on the success of ONC’s world-leading NEPTUNE and VENUS cabled observatories, and since 2012, a community observatory in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. The CMO will investigate technological, scientific and economic issues related to marine transportation, and oil and gas development in the Arctic.
