SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
The Old Harry project, taking place in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, is a good example of how science plays a role in a context of oil & gaz exploration and pressure placed upon a region. On the one hand, Bourgault et al (2014)1 have shown that industry's decision making process and policies were lacking scientific considerations. On the other hand, ocean circulation models have shown the most sensitive areas to oil spills. These results, and those of upcoming studies, will become the knowledge base for any future implementation of oil & gaz exploitation projects in this region.
