Barkley Canyon Refresh Workshop - 5-7 October 2015 at the University of Victoria

See also the general workshop announcement.

This workshop aims at researchers to present results, discuss experiments, assess sites, and recommend plans for future Barkley Canyon research. We are also interested in discussing how the ONC Barkley Canyon experiments moving forward can be integrated into a more regional observation effort with the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) off the west coast of the US.

Since the Barkley Canyon Node was taken offline in January 2015 and the Node was fully recovered in May, plans are underway to repair and redeploy the Node and associated extension cables early in the 2016 (May-June) cruise season. We are taking this opportunity to conduct a thorough assessment of the science achievements and future experiments for the observatory installations at Barkley Canyon. During the week of October 5-7, 2015, Ocean Networks Canada will host a workshop at the University of Victoria.

To participate in this workshop, please contact  Richard Dewey , Associate Director, Science Services with a short explanation of your research interests, past, present, or future at Barkley Canyon.
