Glider and mooring data plots
Researchers at MBARI collect ocean data utilizing a variety of instruments including research ships, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), moorings, and Wave Gliders. The data collected from these vehicles and from research ships and moorings near Monterey Bay are analyzed by oceanographers and marine scientists to study processes such as coastal upwelling, ocean acidification, hypoxia, and climate variability and change.
The web pages below contain real-time data plots from three of MBARI’s moorings and two Wave Gliders, Tiny and Sparky. The data on these pages are preliminary and have not been quality-controlled. MBARI provides data “as is”, with no warranty, express or implied, of the quality or consistency. Data are provided without support and without obligation on the part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to assist in its use, correction, modification, or enhancement.
