NEPTUNE Canada Provides "Terabytes of Data" from Seafloor

NEPTUNENEPTUNE Canada (North-East Pacific Time-Series Undersea Networked Experiments) is featured in NatureNews this month, "Undersea Project Delivers Data Flood" (20 April 2010). The NEPTUNE Project, with 800 km of cable connecting a suite of oceanographic instruments on the seafloor, will eventually receive an estimated "60 terabytes per year" of data. NEPTUNE scientists and data managers are "looking for innovative ways of crunching through the data" by making  information available to the public via the internet and collaborating with the international oceanographic community.
