Canada's Cabled Ocean Networks Humming Along



Canada recently reconfirmed commitment to supporting cabled ocean observations by awarding Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) 5 years of operations and maintenance funding. ONC supports the Victoria Experimental Network Under the Sea (VENUS) and Northeast Pacific Timeseries Underwater Networked Experiments (NEPTUNE Canada), both located offshore Canada's west coast (Figure 1). Results from both efforts demonstrate the wealth of information that can be gained through continuous in situ monitoring of the sea.
