The Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently announced a solicitation (NSF 17-524) that seeks the services of a qualified organization to provide scientific and technical management and operation of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI).
The University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) hosted a recent workshop in Portland, OR focused on the current and future science that can be addressed by the extensive OOI infrastructure operational in the Northeast Pacific.
On Sunday Sept. 18, the R/V Atlantis set sail off the coast of Oregon and Washington for a 17-day Operations and Maintenance cruise of the OOI Coastal Endurance Array. During this cruise, the OOI team led by Oregon State University (OSU) will recover and redeploy six surface moorings as well as the Washington Offshore Profiler Mooring […]
Scientists and engineers from the OOI Marine Implementing Organizations (MIOs) and the OOI Data Team are gearing up to present at the 2016 MTS/IEEE Oceans conference in Monterey Bay, CA September 19 – 22, 2016. The event is set to draw an international audience of more than 2,000 attendees. The conference will center around presentations […]
In July, the OOI CGSN operations team completed another “refresh” of the Pioneer glider fleet. The nominal lifetime for OOI coastal gliders (battery limited) is 90 days. The fleet is refreshed by recovery of exhausted gliders and deployment of refurbished gliders with fresh batteries. The Coastal Pioneer Array is designed to have 6 Coastal Gliders […]
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), the Marine Implementing Organization for the OOI Coastal Pioneer and Global Arrays has created a photo tour of their journey with the OOI from the development and design of these arrays to the completion of construction.
Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) is now serving OOI data on their NANOOS Visualization System (NVS). Data from the OOI Coastal Endurance OR and WA Line Surface Moorings can now be viewed along side other sources including NANOOS, NSF CMOP, NOAA NDBC, and CDIP. This effort marks the beginning of the larger […]
On July 10, the R/V Sikuliaq left dock at the University of Washington to begin VISIONS’16, a 39-day mission to replace and maintain elements of the Cabled Array off the coasts of Oregon and Washington. Led by Chief Scientist Deb Kelley, this is the second Operations and Maintenance cruise for the Cabled Array implementing organization, […]
(From Nautilus / Claudia Geib) I think that for some people,” says Peter Girguis, a deep-sea microbial physiologist at Harvard University, “the ocean seems passé—that the days of Jacques Cousteau are behind us.” He begs to differ. Even though space exploration, he says, “seems like the ultimate adventure, every time we do a deep sea […]
Date: Thursday, July 7th Time: 2:00pm Eastern/11:00pm Pacific The CGSN and EA teams will host a Webinar Thursday, July 7th at 2:00 pm ET to present an overview of the Coastal Pioneer, uncabled Coastal Endurance and Global Array designs. This will include the configuration of the Arrays, descriptions of the various platforms, and engineering details […]
