The Science Plan is organized under four themes, for which Ocean Networks Canada has appointed science theme leaders from the research community who are particularly engaged in the ongoing experiments:
Theme leader: Jim (James) Christian, Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis, University of Victoria
Theme leader: Jacopo Aguzzi, Institut de Ciénces del Mar, Barcelona
Theme leader: Laurence Coogan, University of Victoria
Theme leader: Pere Puig, Institut de Ciénces del Mar
Each theme poses several key scientific questions, describes why each question is important, and explains how Ocean Networks Canada can contribute to answering the question.
