Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

Canadian Arctic Biogeochemsitry Observing Network

University of Calgary - Canada

Arctic Ocean, Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Project, Protect and restore ecosystems and biodiversity, Unlock ocean-based solutions to climate change

In combination with improved observations and modelling, data from annual time series of ocean carbon chemistry in the Canadian Arctic support the development of adaptation strategies to minimize negative impacts and maximize positive outcomes resulting from the human-induced transformation of the Canadian Arctic.

We use: a distributed network of research vessels, ocean observatories, and land-based instrument installations to measure marine biogeochemical processes across the Canadian Arctic to understand regional impacts on greenhouse gas cycling, primary production, and ocean acidification; and an expanded observational network to provide real-time environmental observations to Inuit communities, extend training and research opportunities to Northern residents, and connect with other potential stakeholders.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS)
