Time Series of the Northeast Pacific:
A symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of Line-P


General Information

As one of the longest running ocean time series in the world, Ocean Station Papa (OSP; 50°N and 145°W) represents a unique dataset that has improved our understanding of ocean processes. Meteorological and surface ocean sampling from a weather ship at OSP began in 1949. In 1956, observations were initiated at stations along a line between the coast of British Columbia and OSP. Since then, surveys along this line, now called Line-P, have been undertaken several times each year. Line-P is, however, only one of the ocean time series of the N.E. Pacific, and previous research has benefited from comparisons among the various time series.

This symposium, sponsored by Fisheries & Oceans Canada and the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), will celebrate 50 years of oceanography along Line-P and at OSP. The workshop on the last day will explore the scientific value of both Line-P and the time series of the N.E. Pacific in general.

Dates and Venue

The symposium will be held July 5-8, 2006, at the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria, BC, Canada (map).
