The cycling of the three key chemical controls on life in the ocean (carbon, oxygen, & nitrogen) is undergoing unprecedented change as a result of human activities. We aim to observe, understand, and predict complex interactions within these biogeochemical cycles through a number of different ways; laboratory-based research, sea-going expeditions, sensors on moorings, and ships of opportunity to name a few.

The OTN Ocean Glider Programme regularly deploys two Teledyne Webb Slocum electric gliders along the Halifax Line, running from Chebucto Head to approximately 250 km offshore. Their mission is to provide oceanographic context for models of ocean dynamics that will be related directly to the activities of tracked species. Learn more.
