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.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
