Oceans cover almost three quarters of Earth's surface. They feed us, carry our ships and shape our weather. Within the oceans, biological, chemical, physical and geological processes are unfolding, which we are only beginning to understand.
NEPTUNE Canada offers a unique and exciting approach to ocean science. Traditionally, ocean scientists have relied on infrequent ship cruises or space-based satellites to carry out their research. But NEPTUNE Canada is changing this. We’re the world’s first regional-scale underwater ocean observatory network that plugs directly into the Internet. People everywhere can ‘surf the seafloor,’ while ocean scientists run deep-water experiments from labs and universities anywhere around the world.
