Image : Scientists Gear Up to Launch Ocean Observing Networks

Through OOI, researchers from dozens of institutions will construct and share a multi-disciplinary network that includes cabled seafloor instruments, robotic vehicles, satellites, aircraft, research vessels, shore-based radars, instrumented buoys, drifters and gliders, and meteorological towers. Permanent or "endurance" observatories would be established for years-long observations from one region, while "pioneer" arrays could be set up for temporary campaigns and then moved to other regions.
