The Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO) Real-time and archived coastal oceanographic and meteorological data include wind speed, relative humidity, wave height, and current direction. Together with other observatories located along the east coast from Maine to Southern Florida, researchers are using this south-facing location on Martha's Vineyard to help develop a more accurate, overall view of meteorological and coastal processes occurring under a variety of conditions.
Air-Sea Interaction Tower (ASIT) The Air-Sea Interaction Tower (ASIT) is located in 15 meters of water offshore of the MVCO. The objective of the ASIT is to investigate ocean processes including the transport of carbon dioxide and other gases between the ocean and air, ocean mixing, bio-optics, and sediment transport. ASIT data is compared with data collected from the shore-based MVCO. FTP site for air-side ASIT data
