Seafloor Pressure sensors measure the force on the seafloor exerted by the weight of the overlying water and atmosphere. Real-time pressure measurements are of great importance because lunar tides, storms, and tsunamis strongly impact pressures at the seafloor and the flow of fluids into and out of the oceanic crust.
