Understanding our planet through aurora

Scientists at the University of Calgary in Canada are spearheading aurora studies, that will help us model and predict space weather and understand the Earth’s magnetosphere.

This is how climate change will affect your community

Researchers at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada have created a tool that’s able to visualize the changes about to take place at local communities.

Providing new understanding of an aging population

Canada's population is aging rapidly — and it's crucial that we understand what that change will mean for the country's future. That's what drove the creation of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA).

Seeking powerful neutrinos off the coast of British Columbia

An Alberta physicist is able is search for high-energy neutrinos in the waters off the coast of Vancouver Island, from his desk in Edmonton, thanks to Canada's National Research and Education Network

Supporting the global challenges of the novel coronavirus

The global network of interconnected National Research and Education Networks is boosting international capacity where needed as part of the global rapid response to the recent novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.

Supporting more responsible stewardship of marine ecosystems

OTN research has yielded important insights into the often-mysterious migrations of endangered marine animals like leatherback turtles, basking sharks, American eels, and Bluefin tuna, and have generated critical knowledge towards conservation recommendations.

Pinpointing air pollution from space

For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.

High-speed drug discovery

How do you screen billions of drug compounds to find the right one? Connect a research team at the University of Alberta with a supercomputer 2,700 km away in Ontario using Canada’s high-speed national research and education network. Leveraging this powerful infrastructure, Dr. Michael Houghton and colleagues are speeding up the time it takes for life-saving drugs to be identified from months or years to weeks.

Taking flight: a high-tech approach to studying birds

To encourage national and international collaboration, the Motus web portal will make data summaries and visualizations of bird migration tracking data, captured by the small Motus radio transmitters affixed to individual birds, publicly available for education and citizen science purposes.

Taking astronomy to the cloud

Astronomy has come a long way from the days of Galileo Galilei looking through a telescope to the skies. Major science infrastructures such as the Hubble Space Telescope and telescope arrays, including the forthcoming Square Kilometer Array, create huge amounts of research data for scientists across the world to explore and explain the cosmos.

Understanding the Great White North to Protect the Great White North

ArcticConnect collects data from temperature and dewpoint sensors at research stations throughout the Arctic Circle — including those that provide near-real time data — for visualization, information sharing, and collaborative analysis.

Unravelling the mysteries of our immune system

Five to six years ago, researchers were able to sequence hundreds of immune-system molecules (like antibodies) in the human body. Today they can sequence tens of millions.
