Ocean Networks Canada's world-leading ocean observatories bring data to the surface, accelerating scientific discovery and delivering solutions that support ocean-and-planet sustainability for future generations.
Serving all ages from K-12 and post-secondary, our programs, resources and courses developed with Indigenous partners bring ocean science into classrooms and communities.
Our Unique Contribution
ONC’s technical capabilities enable researchers and coastal communities to access instruments remotely and receive data from anywhere on the globe. Data are collected on ocean physics, chemistry, biology and geology, supporting research on complex Earth processes in ways not previously possible. These ocean observatories generate ‘big data’ openly accessible through the Oceans 3.0 data management system.
ONC encourages active participation in ocean science by communities, scientists, educators, students, industry, and the media.
