About the Feeds
Saanich Inlet 92m This live video feed is take from our most recent deployment (August 12, 2012) from a depth of 92 metres in Saanich Inlet. The camera is logging and broadcasting video feeds at a regular interval (see top of page). The experiments underway continue our support of forensic research for both Drs. Gail Anderson and Lynne Bell of Simon Fraser University. Two pig carcasses were secured immediately under the camera as part of this research. One secured under a cage, to minimize attacks from larges predators (seals, dog-fish, etc.), the other exposed. Both are on a large tray, so that any remaining bones can be recovered with the apparatus is recovered. This research has made significant progress in our understanding of what happens to a carcass on the ocean bottom.
