Partnership Profiles

CIOOS Atlantic is pleased to highlight some of our inspiring collaborations through Partnership Profiles. The profiles highlight organizations that make coastal and ocean data available for CIOOS Atlantic to support in being Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR).

Centre for Marine Applied Research

The Centre for Marine Applied Research (CMAR) leads and supports research projects in collaboration with industry, government, community and other marine user groups that support the sustainable development of coastal resources in Nova Scotia. CMAR collects and analyzes biophysical and socioeconomic data that provide the foundation for science-based decision making and foster innovation necessary to advance the long-term sustainable development of the fisheries and aquaculture industries. Read more about the CMAR and CIOOS Atlantic Partnership at the link below.

Explore the three CMAR datasets collected using three metre tall, one metre diameter meteorological/oceanographic buoys from Xeos Technologies Inc. deployed in Chedabucto Bay, Jordan Bay, and St. Mary’s Bay Nova Scotia available in the CIOOS Atlantic Data Catalogue.


SmartAtlantic, Atlantic Canada’s largest and longest-standing ocean observation system, provides timely and valuable meteorological and oceanographic data from across the region in support of safety, operational efficiency, and situational awareness. The SmartAtlantic platform provides open access to information from across Atlantic Canada, contributing to operational decisions for marine shipping, aquaculture, offshore oil and gas operations and environmental modelling and forecasting, ultimately providing better information for better decisions.
