Irminger Sea Array buoy recovery

Bringing the Buoys Home

Third mate Amy Biddle (right) and bosun Peter Liarikos and prepare to tie up to a surface mooring to ready it for ship recovery on the R/V Neil Armstrong. The mooring is part of the Global Irminger Sea Array, one of four global arrays in the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). The OOI's global arrays provide researchers with year-round, long-term access to under-sampled waters in critical areas of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southern Oceans. Scientific instruments attached to the moorings and to ocean gliders at the arrays make physical, chemical, and biological measurements that are available online to researchers worldwide, many in near-real time.
