MBARI ocean observing system (MOOS)

Monterey Ocean Observing System program (MOOS)

Lead Scientist: John Ryan
Lead Engineer: Mark Chaffey

In 2004, the MOOS program will complete the development of one of the MOOS mooring configurations designed to support upper water column (UWC) studies. The UWC mooring will combine development efforts undertaken over the last three years. The mooring system will support a science deployment in the Santa Cruz bight . This will be an excellent opportunity to test the new systems in support of science and to evaluate how well we have met the requirements identified at the original MOOS workshop in 1999.

Information on individual projects in the MOOS system can be found under the MOOS heading on the 2004 Projects page.
