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.
50+ funded, university researchers
130+ highly-qualified people…from 13 universities.
Who work with:
35+ federal & provincial partners,
50+ industrial and other partners…in Canada and beyond.
We collaborate on 14 large, multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary research projects and 14 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.
