A new horizon for pioneering UVic oceanographer

The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research has named an initiative proposed by Verena Tunnicliffe to a short list of seven projects from Canada and around the world selected for Phase 2 consideration in the institute’s Global Call for Ideas. The institute received more than 280 project submissions including proposals in the social sciences, medicine, health, the biological and physical sciences, humanities, policy and engineering to tackle complex questions of global importance. Tunnicliffe—a founding director of the Ocean Networks Canada observatories—and her colleagues at Memorial University, Universite de Quebec and Universite Laval propose to develop a Canadian-led global initiative to discover and understand the key biological and physical processes in marine ecosystems that lead to better models to predict and sustain their ecological and economic importance to society.
