Buoy preparations

Mike McCarthy prepares a three-meter surface buoy — used in climate and oceanographic studies — for sea. Meteorological instruments will be secured on a tower on the top of the buoy, and a variety of current, temperature and other sensors will be attached on a single line below the buoy, which is anchored to the sea floor.
