On 12 October, 2017, the Surface Buoy on the OOI Global Irminger Sea Array Surface Mooring stopped all communications. There remains no indication as to what may have caused the outage. On 26 October an aerial survey and broad area search was conducted at the Irminger Sea Surface Buoy site and surrounding areas. The surface […]
A new Community Tool, created by Dr. William Wilcock of the University of Washington, in collaboration with Drs. Maya Tolstoy and Felix Waldhauser of Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, provides near-real time documentation of earthquakes on the Axial Seamount using OOI seismometer data. The OOI Cabled Array spans the Juan de Fuca tectonic […]

The OOI ERDDAP server is now online hosting uncabled, telemetered data from OOI moorings and gliders.
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.
