Beginning Monday, June 18th the OOI will be hosting an Early Career Data Workshop that 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 2018-06-14, 10:07 EDT
Due to glider maintenance delays, there are currently very few OOI gliders deployed and delivering live data. The maintenance issues have been largely resolved, and more gliders will be deployed over the late Spring and Summer, building back up to the full complement of gliders in the OOI design baseline. added 2018-04-20, 15:12 EDT

Cabled Array Hack Week: a collaborative setting to explore big ocean data

May 1, 2018
“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

Collaborations across the North Atlantic – Reflections on the 2017 Irminger Sea Regional Science Workshop

April 12, 2018
Late last year, more than 30 researchers from countries spanning the Atlantic met in Southampton, UK at the National Oceanography Centre to foster coordination of research efforts focused on the Irminger Sea region. Of central importance to the workshop was to bring in young investigators. “The Irminger Sea workshop provided me with an incredibly valuable opportunity ...

[OOI in the News] The Economist – Gliders on the storm

March 21, 2018
(From The Economist / Technology Quarterly) From sharks to ice shelves, monsoons to volcanoes, the scope of ocean monitoring is widening. IN NOVEMBER 2016 a large crack appeared in the Larsen C ice shelf off Antarctica (pictured). By July 2017 a chunk a quarter of the size of Wales, weighing one trillion tonnes, broke off from the ...
