Center for Ocean, Seafloor and Marine Observing Systems (COSMOS)

Mission


With decades of experience designing, building and operating marine observing systems of many types around the world, the Institution has established a Center for Ocean, Seafloor and Marine Observing Systems (COSMOS) to provide administrative, management and systems engineering oversight of large observatory and observing systems projects underway at WHOI. COSMOS will serve as a central contact point for scientists at the Institution and at universities and research labs around the country who use Institution systems and facilities, and will help develop new sensors and systems for use by the U.S. scientific community.
