SubC is sponsoring INCISE 2016 in Victoria BC. Other sponsors include NOAA, the David Suziki Foundation and Innovation.ca. See sponsors here. Submarine Canyons create terrain habitat heterogeneity from the ocean shelf to the deep sea.
Canyons often concentrate organic matter enhancing overall ecosystem biomass. Less than 1% of the estimated 10,000+ submarine canyons have been studied worldwide. Many discoveries are to be made.
