Return to #ONCabyss Highlights
From the complex systems of Barkley Canyon to the billowing chimneys at Endeavor Vent Field, the Ocean Networks Canada #ONCabyss cruise was one for the books! Here’s a quick look at some of the features the E/V Nautilus team explored while diving off the coast of western Canada.
The Nautilus team will provide maintenance and support to University of Victoria's Ocean Networks Canada’s NEPTUNE observatory located off the west coast of Canada. The NEPTUNE subsea infrastructure is an 800-kilometer (500-mile) loop of fiber optic cable connected to instruments at five nodes that enables scientists to study seafloor phenomena through continuous long-term, high-resolution observations not afforded by traditional ship-based ocean exploration.
