At WHOI’s Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO), Jay Sisson, Hugh Popenoe, and Jared Schwartz (left to right) switch out part of a “node,” a device that connects several ocean-monitoring instruments. Regular maintenance like this ensures that MVCO’s offshore nodes provide uninterrupted data exchange and power to support increasingly sophisticated coastal ocean research. WHOI’s Center for Ocean, Seafloor, and Marine Observing Systems (COSMOS) oversees MVCO and other regional ocean observing efforts at WHOI.
