UVic ONC, Spanish scientists partner to establish Antarctic Ocean observatory

The University of Victoria’s Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) initiative has partnered with the Spanish National Research Council to establish and operate a new subsea observatory in the Antarctic Ocean. The observatory will provide year-round, near real-time data on ocean conditions in one of the most under-observed parts of the planet. This data will advance scientific understanding on changing biogeochemical and physical ocean processes. “It’s exciting to see ONC’s transformative leadership in ocean science expand internationally to inform climate solutions beyond Canada’s three coasts,” said UVic VP, Research and Innovation Lisa Kalynchuk. “This partnership demonstrates how coastal communities and scientists from around the world can drive technological innovation and scientific discovery.”
