Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a requirement to acquire high resolution temperature and salinity profiles in the north coast of BC between Kitimat and the open ocean (referred to here as Douglas Channel) and then in Hecate Strait. This project will deploy an ocean glider in the upper Douglas Channel and have the glider transit the channel system to Principe Channel and then to Browning Entrance.  The goal is to collect water property data and assess the capabilities and operating requirement of using ocean gliders for oceanographic monitoring in remote restricted channels with fresher water in the upper 20 metres of the water column.
