ObjectivesLine P is a long standing program which surveys a 1400 km long section 3 times annually. Data have been collected along this line since 1956 and show evidence of the impact of climate variability on ocean productivity. It is the only Canadian long time-series that allows scientists to monitor climate changes in the Pacific Ocean. It is also the best opportunity for other programs (e.g. Universities) to do research in the Pacific since the Line P data give them background as well as current water properties.
