Upgraded buoys

A partnership between the WHOI Upper Ocean Processes Group, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) is aimed at augmenting four weather buoys with instruments to measure visible and infrared radiation, critical to ecosystems and climate research. The first of these upgraded buoys —funded by a grant from the Mass. Technology Collaborative’s  John Adams Innovation Institute— was deployed last week at a station off Georges Bank.
