Who We Are

The Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) is a team of outstanding, Canadian natural and social scientists working to reduce our vulnerability to marine hazards and emergencies.

Presently, over 50 MEOPAR researchers from 12 universities and 4 federal departments are collaborating on 7 research projects, but our network and projects are growing.

Hosted at Dalhousie University, MEOPAR is funded by the Government of Canada’s Network of Centres of Excellence Program and was established in 2012.
