NEPTUNE Canada: Using technology to foster an inclusive approach to ocean science

Time 10/05/11 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

The concept behind the NEPTUNE Canada Ocean Network developed from a growing recognition of the interactivity of earth, ocean and atmospheric processes. Creating an integrated understanding of the connectivity of earth and ocean dynamics requires an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary cooperation.

Via instruments connected to the 800 km NEPTUNE Canada Ocean Network, we gather live ocean data and make them freely available through our website (http://www.neptunecanada.ca). This is a portal for scientists, teachers, students, policy makers and members of the general public to access and download data, to collaborate, and to discover the state of the art in ocean research.

The NEPTUNE Canada data policy emphasizes free and open use, enabling accelerated utilization of data, which in turn hastens the pace of scientific discovery. Engaging a larger community creates a culture of collaboration at the local, regional and international scales. This inclusive approach allows interested parties to participate in ocean science in new ways which were not possible with traditional research methodologies. We utilize state of the art technology including crowd sourcing, online collaboration, video conferencing, and live at-sea video streaming to engage the greatest number of people possible in understanding, disseminating and furthering our knowledge of ocean dynamics.
