Ocean Observatory in the Gulf of Mexico

Oct. 26, 2010 12:19 pm

The University of Victoria, 300 km off the coast of Vancouver Island, Canada, has installed the world's first Ocean Observatory in the Neptune Canada.

It would be nice to see such an observatory established in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the BP/Halliburton Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. The NOAA has been working alongside BP from the onset with deployment of their expert advisers and research vessels, as have other collaborations.

Perhaps those responsible for the spill might initiate just such a project as the long term effects from the use of dispersants, as well as the crude oil itself, will be ongoing for years to come. Kudos to Neptune Canada and the prospect of further sharing of knowledge about our beautiful oceans.
