Brian Hogue (Senior Engineering Assistant I) oversees SSMOG.

In addition to the instrument support, SSMOG personnel regularly oversee the safe deployment and recovery of the moorings that support this instrumentation.  The group also develops proposal budgets and manages grant funds allocated to SSMOG, designs moorings, handles shipping and cruise logistics, and coordinates instrument maintenance schedules.
