NEPTUNE Canada goes live

After years of planning and development, the NEPTUNE Canada cabled ocean observatory—the largest and most advanced in the world—is ready to make its debut.

The public launch of live data from the depths of the Pacific Ocean takes place on Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. in the Bob Wright Centre auditorium B150. The campus community is invited to join the celebration either in person or via a live webcast at

Led by the University of Victoria, NEPTUNE Canada pioneers a new generation of ocean observation systems that use innovative engineering, data communications and sensor technologies to gather continuous real-time data and images from the ocean.

Find out how land-based scientists from across Canada and around the world can conduct offshore and deep-sea experiments remotely, and how their discoveries will help us better understand ocean and climate change, marine ecosystems and resources, tectonic activity, and much more.
