Platforms and sensor systems measure physical, chemical, geological and biological properties and processes from the seafloor to the air-sea interface.
Beginning Monday, July 16th the OOI will be hosting a week-long Early Career Data Workshop, which will involve numerous concurrent data requests by participants. Please be advised that due to this increased load on the system, data request fulfillment may be slower than normal. We recommend that, when possible, large data requests be delayed until after the workshop. Please contact the Help Desk with any questions. added 2018-07-11, 11:09 EDT

“The OOI is a great resource for students,” says Neal. “It’s not too time consuming, comes right to your inbox, and is very organized so I could pick it up really quickly. It’s amazing that the data are right at your fingertips; you can just go in and get it.”

“It’s a 25-year program and you have committed to sailing every year to service your arrays,” says Philip, “that is a tremendous opportunity for students and researchers on board to do research that leverages the OOI instrumentation. The OOI is more than just data streaming to shore, it is also about the additional science you ...
“I wanted to study the ocean’s role in climate and how it takes carbon out of the atmosphere,” says Palevsky. “My goal was to look at the balance between biological, physical, and chemical processes and how they allow the ocean to take up carbon.”
On June 19th, the R/V Roger Revelle departed Newport, OR to begin VISIONS’18, a 47-day expedition to replace and maintain elements of the Cabled Array off the coasts of Oregon and Washington as well as to add some novel sensors.
On August 27-29, 2018, an Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Deep Ocean Observing Workshop will be held in Seattle, WA. This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary forum to develop deep ocean science questions and identify societal needs that could be addressed using the existing OOI infrastructure. The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to gather detailed ...
“The size and complexity of ocean data is growing beyond the capacity of what one person and one computer can handle. We need to be thinking of collaborative, cloud-based tools to really explore the capacity of these data.” Friedrich Knuth, Cabled Array Hackweek organizer
