One of COSMOS activities is managing WHOI’s ocean observatory, the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO) on Martha’s Vineyard’s southern shore.  MVCO, a cabled observatory, connects an undersea power node, plus a tower carrying instruments, to an onshore “meteorological mast” monitoring weather, and an onshore laboratory.  The MVCO provides laboratory-quality power and communications in a nearby ocean setting exposed to forcing from the open North Atlantic.
