Design

Global Scale Nodes

Sustained atmospheric, physical, biogeochemical, ecological, and seafloor observations at high latitudes are required to understand critical influences on the global ocean-atmosphere system.

The OOI’s design process has identified four strategic high-latitude sites to implement global scale nodes to collect this multidisciplinary time-series data:

Coastal Scale Nodes

The OOI’s Coastal Scale Nodes are designed to provide sustained, but adaptable, access to complex coastal systems. The initial stage of the coastal observatory consists of two elements:
