Apex Profiler Mooring (GP02HYPM)

The Station Papa Apex Profiler Mooring is co-located with a NOAA Surface Mooring. Additionally, at the Station Papa site are two identical Flanking Subsurface that make up the equidistant sides of a triangle of Moorings (40 km) from the co-located Profiler and Surface Moorings. The Profiler Mooring is located in 4,250 meters in the Gulf of Alaska in the NE Pacific. The triangular configuration moorings provide unique spatial array through which instruments fixed to moorings continuously collect data through time and gliders sample the area between the moorings. The Station Papa site is one of four high latitude open ocean locations in the OOI that provide observations to gain better insight into global ocean circulation and climate.

Like other Apex Profiler Moorings, the Station Papa Apex Profiler Mooring contains two Wire-Following Profilers that house instrumentation. The Wire-Following Profiler moves through the water column along the mooring riser, continuously sampling ocean characteristics at a high vertical resolution over a specified depth interval (310-2,100 meters and 2,100-4000 meters deep).
