Eyes on Both Coasts

OceanCube is an autonomous underwater coastal observatory that provides real-time data and images from a variety of biological, physical, and chemical sensors. A team from WHOI led by biologist Scott Gallager recently installed an OceanCube in the Carribean Sea at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (left) and another in the Pacific at the Liquid Jungle Lab as part of a new Cross-Isthmus Observing System. The network provides a much-needed time series on plankton diversity (right), reef fish community structure, and how these and other characteristics and processes are affected by ocean acidification and climate change.
