Canadian-Pacific Robotic Ocean Observing Facility

The Canadian-Pacific Robotic Ocean Observing Facility was initiated with CFI/BCKDF funding to build ocean observing capacity off the British Columbia coast. It operates a fleet of autonomous gliders, floats, and moorings providing ocean scientists with long-term monitoring of the ocean at the small scales important to resolve upper ocean physical and biological processes.


Our Deployments Page has a list of glider deployments and access to glider data; see Platforms Page for information about the Argo floats and how to access data:
