--"The NEPTUNE Regional Cabled Ocean Observatory: Interactive Networks of Remotely Operated Submarine Laboratories"
John Delaney

The Earth, ocean, planetary, and biological sciences are in a
transformational period triggered by the confluence of technological
advancements in sensor technologies, robotic systems, high-speed
communication, nanotechnology, and dramatically escalating capabilities to
computationally simulate reality
A regional ocean observatory design that capitalizes on these advances is
the NEPTUNE facility that will be located in the northeast Pacific Ocean. A
joint U.S./Canadian project, this network of fiber-optic/power cable will host
30-50 submarine laboratories at nodes along the cable and will enable
real-time, long-term, interactive studies of Earth and ocean processes. To
be spatially associated with the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate, the NEPTUNE
infrastructure is being designed to have an expected lifetime of 30 years.
It will serve as a community resource, much like a research vessel is an
observational platform open to a wide range of users
