Request for Mooring Budget
The Mooring Operations, Engineering and Field Support Group will work with scientific investigators to provide a budget for mooring
services work. It may be beneficial to
meet with Rick Trask or John Kemp to discuss specific mooring needs and time
schedules before requesting a cost estimate.
Prior to preparing a budget, it is helpful to provide the
of Principal Investigator(s) and affiliation
deployment - turnaround - recovery schedule
support personnel required
- Cruise length
- Surface or subsurface
- Number of moorings
- Water depths
- Instrumentation types and desired measurement depths
- Anticipated current profile
- Shipping information - include in mooring budget? Ocean? Air?
budget is required
- Submission deadline
Mooring designs can be tailored to the user’s needs, drawing
on a wide range of designs and innovations, all with proven success. Complete fabrication with an emphasis on
quality and accuracy will follow, accessing an extensive inventory of wire,
synthetics, hardware and buoyancy.
