Ocean Networks Canada: Wiring the Abyss 2013

A A

Researchers at the University of Victoria are embarking on the second-half of a voyage to explore growing low-oxygen water in the Salish Sea. The university is partnering with the Schmidt Ocean Institute (created by Google chairman Eric Schmidt and his wife) and they’re making the $62 million research vessel, Falkor, available to the team.

The hope is to get to a point where they can predict when low-oxygen water flows in, and take steps to better protect fish stock. For more information — Ocean Networks Canada: Wiring the Abyss 2013
