Data from the OOI Southern Ocean Array Surface Mooring have been integrated into the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Telecommunication System, making these data more easily accessible for weather forecasters and modelers.

A new computer vision routine, developed by Aaron Marburg at UW-APL and aided by Tim Crone at LDEO and Friedrich Knuth at Rutgers, is now able to correctly identify and tag scenes of scientific interest in the CAMHD video stream. These scenes were previously being manually identified by students at Rutgers University, a process which […]
(From Los Angeles Times / Deborah Netburn) We humans weren’t the only life-forms to be affected by the Great American Eclipse on Monday. Tiny marine creatures known as zooplankton got all mixed up as the sunlight grew increasingly dim along the path of totality. One hour before the sky went dark, the gradual change in […]
On August 21, the path of totality of the “Eclipse Across America” will pass directly over two OOI Coastal Endurance Array Surface Moorings. These moorings will “see” the eclipse minutes before it is seen from the mainland.
(From Los Angeles Times / Deborah Netburn) It’s not just humans who will be affected by the Great American Eclipse coming on Aug. 21 — expect animals to act strangely too. Anecdotal evidence and a few scientific studies suggest that as the moon moves briefly between the sun and the Earth, causing a deep twilight […]
On July 27, the R/V Roger Revelle departed Newport, OR to begin VISIONS’17, a 32-day mission to replace and maintain elements of the Cabled Array off the coasts of Oregon and Washington.
Rutgers hosted two Teaching with Data Workshops (New Brunswick, New Jersey, May 19-21, 2017 (chemistry focused), and June 2-4, 2017 (geology focused) in an effort to bring together undergraduate professors, from both community colleges and universities, from ten states to learn the software and explore classroom activities that use OOI data.
As part of its continuing commitment to ensuring the most efficient use of its resources, and consistent with recommendations in the National Academy of Sciences’ 2015 report “Sea Change: Decadal Survey of Ocean Sciences 2015-2025”, the Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) is working with the Consortium for Ocean Leadership…
Last weekend a Teaching with Data Workshop (New Brunswick, New Jersey, May 19-21, 2017) brought together undergraduate professors from six states to learn the software and explore pilot content developed by OOI.
The Axial Seamount Biology Catalog is a collection of stunning video and still imagery obtained during the Construction and Operation and Maintenance phases of the OOI Cabled Array spanning 2011 to 2016. The catalog currently contains 39 unique faunal entries, 63 videos, and 62 images.
