The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) program in September completed installation of the 540 miles of undersea fiber optic cable that will link scientists and others on land to data streaming from an extensive array of OOI next generation sensors located in the ocean and on the sea floor.
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Program in March completed the drilling necessary to install the power and data undersea cable at Pacific City, Ore., for the Regional Scale Node (RSN) cabled component of the OOI infrastructure that ultimately will link scientists and others in the user community to data streaming from observing sensors in the ocean.
The OOI Project in February beginning installation of the power and data undersea cable at Pacific City, Oregon, for the cabled component of the OOI that ultimately will link scientists and others in the OOI user community to data streaming from observing sensors in the ocean.
For the first time, data from electronic tags attached to marine animals will be incorporated into the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®).
ANTARCTICA is a peculiar place. For instance, unlike those in most parts of the planet, the ocean depths around it are warmer, at 5ºC or so, than the shallows near the coast.
The Consortium for Ocean Leadership, with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), has selected Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., of Bellevue, Wash., to provide Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) instruments for the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI).
Near the bottom of the world, a team of scientists from Rutgers University and other institutions are tracking how events in the Ross Sea affect climate change — not just with temperature and currents, but through the ebb and flow of life itself.
Ocean Leadership has compiled a 2010 Year in Review for our newsletter readers. We hope that this gives you a great understanding of the breadth of work that our organization completed in 2010.
The climate secrets of the deepest part of the ocean, the Marianas Trench in the western Pacific Ocean, have been probed by scientists.
The first expedition to search for deep-sea hydrothermal vents along the Mid-Cayman Rise deep in the Caribbean Sea turned up a bonanza.
