Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory

Taking the Long View

A fog bow, caused by light refracted through small water droplets in fog, arcs below the Air-Sea Interaction Tower in Martha's Vineyard Sound. The tower, a part of the Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO), has enabled scientists to study coastal atmospheric and oceanic processes over the past 15 years. The MVCO is now part of a new, much larger Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site off the U.S. northeast coast. Funded by the National Science Foundation and led by WHOI biologist Heidi Sosik, the Northeast U.S. Shelf LTER is intended to address complex ecological questions over the long term.
