The seafloor is home to a variety of benthic organisms that spend much, if not all, of their time on the bottom sliding along or ploughing through sediment. This process by which organisms mix up sediment is known as bioturbation, and it is ecologically important because it influences nutrient recycling and other biogeochemical processes on the seafloor.
Our Vertical Profiler System (VPS) has not been in the water for over a year; it will be redeployed, after some extensive testing, and even a trip back to Japan to be repaired, during our upcoming summer cruise.
Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers, or ADCPs, are used in our subsea network and other oceanographic applications to measure the various currents at different sites.
Over our first two years of operations, NEPTUNE Canada has recorded thousands of hours of video, both during installation dives and from underwater cameras installed across our subsea network. All this video needs to be studied. But it’s a daunting task for scientists to view so much footage and describe what they see – this is where you can help.
