CERC.OCEAN Chairholder Dr. Douglas Wallace has been named as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a prestigious nomination to recognise his contribution and leadership in the sciences and Canadian public life.
Dr. Douglas Wallace and Research Associate Dr. Dariia Atamanchuk published a paper on higher-than-expected oxygen levels in Labrador Sea as a result of gas bubbles injection through a 'trap door', highlighting the important of its role in deep ocean oxygenation and its future under climate change.
Allison Chua is studying how low-cost marine robotic vehicles can be used to collect data where serious limitations occur for typical oceanographic instrumentation. Her and her team were able to test their underDOG in action at the OHMSETT oil spill testing tank in New Jersey.
A new research study conducted by CERC.OCEAN scientists explores the geomicrobiology and carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur cycles of Powell Lake, a deep, permanently stratified lake in British Columbia that still contains ancient seawater, trapped in its depths since the end of the last ice age.

Members of the CERC.OCEAN team participated in an IOCCP and BONUS-Integral sponsored course on biogeochemical sensors in Sweden. PhD students, Lorenza Raimondi and Ricardo Arruda were participants, and Research Scientist Dr. Dariia Atamanchuk was an instructor.
In March of 2019, CERC.OCEAN researchers, along with colleagues from the Marine Institute in Ireland, published an inter-comparison of nutrient results analyzed at sea following the GO-SHIP cruise in May of 2017.
