Ocean Observatories
Deployed observatories

Observation systems have been deployed in the ocean to provide critical information for research on climate change, biogeochemical cycles, ecosystem assessment, and environmental hazards. The various systems include cabled systems to distribute power and communications, fleets of profiling floats, drifters, and autonomous vehicles. Field experiments that coordinate stationary and mobile assets of multiple institutions increase community access to a variety of data while reducing costs.
