Poster Information
Abstract: Ocean Networks Canada operates the NEPTUNE and VENUS cabled ocean observatories that offer researchers online access to time-series and real-time underwater imagery and data from hundreds of sensor in the Salish Sea and the northeast Pacific Ocean. We are currently building a communication and outreach program around observatory research taking place in Barkley Canyon, a submarine canyon off the coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. By focusing on a single geographical location we hope to engage the public in a process of discovery of a poorly known deep-ocean environment. Our communication strategy emphasizes the visual beauty of marine organisms, the hostility (and fragility) of the submarine canyon environment and the leading edge underwater vehicles and sensor technologies that are at the core of our observatories. Online resources that support our communications program include undersea video, still photos, interactive electronic guides to the deep-sea fauna and geology (iBook), crowd sourcing games, live video streaming during at sea operations, and high quality 3D bathymetric maps. We will also examine the challenge of building and maintaining an online audience.Summary: We are building a communication and outreach program around observatory research taking place in Barkley Canyon, a submarine canyon off the coast of Vancouver Island, Canada.References: Report abuse »
