Wiring the Abyss: Adventures in Deep-Sea Engineering

PART OF: Our Changing Ocean: Series 3

Course description

Summer 2016 was an exciting time at sea for Ocean Networks Canada. In a coordinated dance, the Exploration Vessel Nautilus and the Cable Ship Wave Venture worked together to repair the Barkley Canyon node of the Ocean Networks Canada NEPTUNE observatory and lay new cable across an underwater volcanic ridge some 300 km off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Learn about conducting multi-ship operations, using fibre-optic technology, and the challenges of engineering at 2,600 m depths from a scientist who participated in the mission.

Instructor: Dr. Maia Hoeberechts is the Associate Director, User Services at Ocean Networks Canada. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from Western University and now brings her passion for technology to the deep sea as a regular participant in installation and maintenance expeditions.
