Our annual workshops are opportunities for present and future scientists from a wide range of institutions, countries and disciplines to meet, collaborate and shape NEPTUNE Canada's future.
This workshop will focus on research done at Folger Passage and Barkley Sound. It will bring together existing and new researchers to discuss present status, results and future opportunities for collaborative and cross-disciplinary projects.
The goals of the workshop are to:
Please confirm by 10 May 2013 to email@example.com if you are able to join the workshop. Limited funding is available to support participants travel who either:
For funding consideration, please email a one page summary of your contribution, which also indicates whether it is a presentation, white paper or poster.
This workshop provides a forum for participants to discuss interdisciplinary opportunities that would be enabled by extending power and communications/data transmission from the NEPTUNE network to CORKs at IODP 1027 deep-sea site on the eastern flank of the Juan de Fuca Ridge - a remote and dynamic ocean environment. Discussions will include potential instrumentation, technological and logistical issues, funding, proposed process, and timeline.
This workshop will provide an overview of the NEPTUNE Canada installation to date, describe opportunities for coordination, summarize current research results, and present future expansion plans. Further discussion will address the following questions:
The workshop, co-sponsored by Dalhousie University and Ocean Networks Canada, will provide researchers and students with hands-on training in accessing and visualizing data from the NEPTUNE Canada and VENUS undersea networks. Workshop participants will discuss current and future observatory research in the areas of benthic ecology, benthic boundary layer dynamics, water column studies, modeling of physical and biological processes and acoustic monitoring of bedform dynamics.
NEPTUNE Canada currently has five operating and instrumented nodes on its undersea network with a sixth site, at Middle Valley on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, ready for installation of a node module. The goals of the workshop were to review known and emerging research opportunities at Middle Valley and to develop a phased instrumentation plan that could be implemented once connectivity was available at the site.
NEPTUNE Canada's annual workshop is set for June 2-4 2011 in Victoria. This workshop is a forum for existing and new researchers to discuss the present status of the undersea network, communicate research results, and define future directions.
Our 2010 NEPTUNE Canada workshop was held 12-14 April in Victoria, BC. Scientists to discussed early findings from their research, proposed improvements to data products and tools and started planning for the next batch of science initiatives.
The first NEPTUNE Canada workshop occurred 14-16 February 2009 at the University of Victoria. Over 25 scientists involved in 11 core research projects shared updates and worked out many details to prepare for the installation cruises of 2009. In addition, participants were given sneek peeks of software protypes belonging to our Oceans 2.0 development effort.
Specialists from several leading institutions gathered at the University of Victoria to explore a way forward for ocean data interoperability.
