Neptune Canada: Transforming Ocean Science

The NEPTUNE Canada project, along with sister project, VENUS, offers a unique 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 by building the world’s first regional-scale underwater ocean observatory that plugs directly into the Internet. Since December 2009, people everywhere have been able to surf the seafloor, while ocean scientists are able to run deep-water experiments from labs and universities anywhere around the world.
