The significance of research platforms for future advances in the Earth sciences



Scientific advances in recent decades in space exploration, satellite observations, and supercomputing have resulted in an ability to undertake global studies that were formerly impossible. The change in applied earth sciences from supporting the resource exploration sector to including the environmental conservation and protection sector has added new requirements for regional and global baseline environmental studies. Many new initiatives have been launched as international collaborative programs in which Canada - given its large land area and its frontage on three oceans - has commonly had a special responsibility to play an important scientific role. -from Author
