Welcome to the Pressure Chamber!

A variety of specialized instruments to monitor pressure, temperature, and other parameters are providing insights into a wide variety of processes active in both the ocean above and Earth's crust below the NEPTUNE Canada seafloor network.

Bottom pressure recorders (BPRs) connected to NEPTUNE Canada are providing researchers a unique and detailed realtime view of ocean tides and waves, while pressure recorders sounding the crust via instrumented boreholes are yielding unique information about seismogenesis, and about ways that the crust and ocean are mutually linked. These instruments are capable of resolving sea-level displacements as small as 1/10th of a millimetre, and temperature variations as small as a fraction of a millidegree.

The goal of this blog will be to share, with a series of short articles, some interesting observations and insights by some of the scientists watching the ocean and earth through BPR-glasses.
