Description: Building knowledge

The graphic is showing that scientists build knowledge and expand their understanding of Canada’s oceans with several steps for monitoring and research. The steps are shown using a progression of circles. The first yellow circle says “research question”. grey arrows point to the next coloured circle which reads “make a plan”, a grey arrow points to the next circle with the text “gather data” followed by another circle that reads “analyze data”. A yellow arrows loop back to the first research question circle. The next circle reads “share results” with a yellow arrow that loops back to the research question circle. The last circle in the diagram reads “inform and advise”  with another yellow arrow that links back to research question. A box underneath the diagram is linked to the “gather data” circle and shows fieldwork such as an oceanographic clider, a sensor on a turtle and a plankton net. It shows modeling and analyses of global temperature, and lab work of shellfish in a tank. Another box with text is linked to “share results” circle and reads “Sharing knowledge and publishing scientific results with the global community builds our collective understanding of the oceans.” A text box is linked to the “inform and advise” circle and reads “Scientists provide crucial information to policymakers and ocean communities to help them make decisions".
