The ocean contributes significantly to Canada's economy, yet less than 10% has been adequately mapped and the spatial distribution of most species is not well understood.
The 4D OCEANS Lab's research focuses on mapping the spatial complexity of the ocean from the seafloor to the surface. Our goal is to create an integrated picture of our oceans which will allow us to understand the relationships between habitats, resources, human activities and changing conditions.
