Remote operations

WHOI engineers Peter Brickley (foreground) and Diana Wickman monitored glider deployments occurring from R/V Knorr while sitting in the comfort of the Coleman and Susan Burke Operations Room at WHOI. The gliders are part of the Pioneer Array component of the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). The operations room is the home-base for monitoring moorings and gliders deployed throughout the world's oceans by WHOI's OOI team.
