About NEPTUNE Canada

NEPTUNE Canada, or the North-East Pacific Time-series Undersea Networked Experiments, is the world's first regional cabled ocean observatory.  It consists of an 800-km network of electro-optic cable laid on the seabed over the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate, off the coast of British Columbia.  This tectonic plate is one of the most active on the planet and serves as an exceptional natural laboratory for ocean observation and experiments.

NEPTUNE Canada instruments will yield continuour real-time data and imagery from the ocean surface to beneath the seafloor, and from the coast to the deep sea.  They will be interactive, responding to events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, fish migrations, plankton blooms, storms and volcanic eruptions.  Via the Internet, land-based scientists anywhere in Canada or around the world will instruct instruments to conduct offshore and deep-sea experiments and to send data, without leaving their laboratories and offices.
