NEPTUNE Canada

The NEPTUNE Canada Project (North-East Pacific Time-Series Underwater Networked Experiments) currently has 800 km of cable connecting a suite of oceanographic instruments and video cameras in the "first regional-scale underwater ocean observatory that plugs directly into the Internet." The observatory, located in the Northeast Pacific off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, is "collecting data from 11 instrument platforms and over 50 instruments installed in 4 locations" along the 800-km cable.
