Lifelong Learner and Citizen Scientist Resources

Here are some ideas so that you can further engage with our #knowtheocean community. Become a citizen scientist by analyzing deep-sea videos using our Digital Fishers on-line game, or challenge yourself and learn how to search Ocean Networks Canada's wealth of ocean data and video archive.


NEW: Ocean Networks Canada Webinar Series

Our next talk is on  Wednesday, July 22 at 11am. 

Biogeochemical Argo, or BGC-Argo, is an emerging component of the global Argo float array, which is itself a component of the Global Ocean Observatory System. With nearly 4000 floats in operation at any one time, this global array has achieved unprecedented spatial and temporal coverage of ocean observations that support weather forecasts, climate models, and ocean research. Developments in sensor technology have led to the more sophisticated BGC-Argo floats that can measure biological and chemical variables and are useful for understanding how ocean ecosystems function and how they respond to external forcing such as climate change. This webinar will introduce the technology of BGC-Argo floats and outline the plans at Ocean Networks Canada to deploy floats in the NE Pacific in partnership with the Canadian BGC-Argo program..
