If yes, please describe this equipment:
We will deploy the seafloor optical comms unit at the CORK 1025C well head. Wi will hook up this unit to the exisiting data logger and then leave the unit in place for nominally one year.
The plan would be to revisit with Jason in 2011 to retrieve data and retrieve the unit, to rebattery and to reinstall for another year.
