Pioneer Array
FIGURE 3. The Pioneer Array, to be deployed in the Mid-Atlantic Bight, will combine moorings, ocean gliders and AUVs to sample a region spanning the continental shelf where depth falls off quickly, changing from 100 m to 500 m deep across the array of 10 moorings. Some of the buoys will generate power and provide that power to AUV docking stations on the sea floor. (Illustration by Jack Cook, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
