Unique features of the Steele Ocean Sciences Building will aid in research

Included in the new building is a unique container bay that holds several portable labs constructed from standard 20-foot shipping containers. This allows Dr. Doug Wallace, Dalhousie’s new Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Ocean Science and Technology, and his team to work in the same labs out at sea as they do when they’re back on shore.
