Barkley Canyon Refresh Workshop

October 5-7, 2015 at the University of Victoria

Map of Barkley Canyon Installations as of January 2015.

As many of you know, the Barkley Canyon Node was taken offline in January 2015, and the Node was fully recovered in May. Repairs are underway, and the re-installed Node came back online on May 15, while associated instrument platfroms will be re-installed during the June expedition. We took this opportunity to conduct a thorough assessment of the science achievements and future experiments for the observatory installations at Barkley Canyon. During the week of October 5-7, 2015, Ocean Networks Canada hosted a workshop at the University of Victoria for researchers to present results, discuss experiments, assess sites, and recommend plans for future Barkley Canyon research. We are also interested in discussing how the ONC Barkley Canyon experiments moving forward can be integrated into a more regional observation effort with the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) off the west coast of the US.
