Understanding the physical, chemical, and biological processes governing climate, productivity, and ecosystem structure in the North Atlantic and Canadian Arctic gateways  

The Northwest Atlantic Biological Carbon Pump

Without the ocean's biological carbon pump, carbon dioxide concentrations would be nearly double the amount in the atmosphere today and Earth’s climate would be radically different. Currently, we do not have measurements or models to reliably predict how these processes will change as the climate warms.

Offshore Groundwater Resources in a Changing Marine Environment: SOURCE

Freshwater offshore aquifers located beneath the seafloor may represent a new and critical water resource for Prince Edward Island, and for similar island settings worldwide.

Benthic Ecosystem Mapping for Sustainable Ocean Stewardship in a Shifting Ocean Climate - BEcoME

Surprisingly, only a small fraction of the seafloor has been mapped at the levels needed for us to understand ocean seafloor processes. This project aims to address data gaps in the Northwest Atlantic and help predict how threats like climate change will drive changes to vulnerable marine life on and near the seafloor.
