The Canadian Cordillera - the mountainous regions of western Canada - represents a world-class natural laboratory for exploring the interconnected Earth systems that are critical to our understanding of major scientific grand challenges. The Canadian Cordillera Array (CCArray) is a proposed international scientific initiative, spearheaded by the creation of a tectonic plate-boundary scale, open-data Earth Systems observational network, that will enable trans-disciplinary research focused on Earth systems processes and boundaries - from Earth's core to the magnetosphere. During the past few years, regional and national workshops have been held to define high-level scientific targets and geographical regions for a CCArray network in western Canada (Boggs et al 2018a), capitalizing on anticipated domestic and international opportunities for instrumentation, operations and funding. CCArray is highly ambitious, but it represents only the first stage in a proposed national initiative, EON-ROSE (Earth-System Observing Network-Réseau d'Observation du Système terrestrE). This article provides a brief introduction to the scientific vision and objectives of CCArray and EON-ROSE, together with information about the proposed infrastructure and some of the planned research themes. It concludes with a summary of the bright prospects for collaboration between academia, resource industries and governments, local communities and organizations outside of Canada.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The article describes proposed programs in solid-Earth and environmental sciences. They has a backbone component of deployment of networks of instruments to measure and monitor the solid-Earth, atmosphere, and ionosphere to research the environment and how it is changing, assist in the sustainable discovery and management of mineral resources, and delineate natural hazards such as earthquakes. Canadian Cordillera Array (CCArray) is the first phase of the national Earth-System Observing Network/Réseau d'Observation du Système terrestrE (EON-ROSE) program.
