Changing Oceans


We are conducting a series of interrelated research projects that includes OceanCanada members from all WGs to investigate: (i) quantification of contributions of coastal habitats and resources to current and past community well-being; (ii) changes in ocean and socio-economic drivers in Canada under global change; (iii) effects of changing oceans on coastal habitats and resources; (iv) socio-economic, policy and governance responses to changing habitats and resources; (v) future of coastal community well-being under global change; (vi) development of conceptual models to explore high-level health and ocean health linkages.
