Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Program Successfully Completes At Sea Equipment Test

The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) in April successfully recovered equipment deployed for at sea tests in the waters south of New England.

Surface Mooring

The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) program successfully deployed moorings off the New England Coast, marking the first comprehensive test of an OOI system on the East Coast.

The large surface buoy is deployed off R/V Oceanus during the At Sea Test deployments in September 2011. The buoy contains instruments to measure air-sea interactions, solar and wind generators to recharge the mooring's batteries, and satellite communications equipment to send data to shore.
