MEOPalooza – our Annual Scientific Meeting
June 16-18, 2015, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Overview – Ocean Acidification Expert Forum 
February 18-19, 2015

The Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) is a team of outstanding, Canadian natural and social scientists. We’re working to better understand and predict the impact of marine hazards on human activities and ecosystems…and improve response.

MEOPAR has 155+ university researchers and 150+ highly-qualified people from 20 universities across the country.

Working with: 35+ federal & provincial partners, and 50+ industrial and other partners…in Canada and beyond.

We collaborate on multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary research projects including our core research activities, but our network and projects are growing.

MEOPAR’s researchers study marine hazards arising from:

  • weather and climate change, e.g. storms, coastal erosion due to waves,
  • chemical and biological change, e.g. ocean acidification,
  • geophysical events, e.g. tsunamis, and
  • direct human impacts, e.g. oil spills, ship accidents.

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