Ocean Observatories Initiative Global Array

Steady As It Goes

Jim Ryder of the WHOI Mooring Operations and Engineering Group (left) steadies the line of a wire-following profiler, part of a Global Array mooring aboard the research vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer at a remote ocean site off the coast of Argentina. The yellow enclosure houses a suite of instruments and transits up and down a mooring riser in the ocean to collect continuous, high-resolution measurements. The Global Arrays are part of the National Science Foundation-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative—a system of long-term ocean arrays that gather data around the clock and relay them ashore in near real time to scientists, educators, and the public.
