At Work in the Gulf Stream

WHOI technicians and engineers from the Upper Ocean Processes Group deployed this CLIMODE (CLIvar MOde water Dynamics Experiment) buoy in the Gulf Stream in late 2005. Sensors on the buoy measured air and water temperature, sunlight, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and current speed and direction. The buoy was part of the ASIMET system researchers use to study how air-sea interactions affect weather and climate. The WHOI Buoy Group recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first deployment. (Photo by Tatiana Rykova, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
