Platforms and sensor systems measure physical, chemical, geological and biological properties and processes from the seafloor to the air-sea interface.
A Community Welcome from The OOI 2.0 Team The Ocean Observatories Initiative team is excited about implementation of OOI 2.0 and advancing this community facility over the next five years. Phase two of OOI began October 1, 2018 following the award by the National Science Foundation of a cooperative agreement to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to ...
Last month, the OOI hosted a workshop in Seattle, WA focusing on exploring research questions in deep ocean observing in the NE Pacific using nearby OOI arrays (Cabled Array, Endurance Array, Station Papa) and other regional observatories.
Stemming from the successful Cabled Array Hackweek in February 2018, the OceanHackweek last month set out to broaden their scope of data exploration to include all OOI assets as well as other large scale ocean observatories, such as Argo and the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).
[Early Career Highlight] – Mei Sato – Using sound to unravel how animals change their behavior in complex environmentsSeptember 26, 2018
“Having all of those sensors available at the same time as bioacoustics data is a huge opportunity for me and other scientists,” says Sato. “It is not just biology or physics, it is the coupling that is so critical. I think the OOI will provide a big opportunity for us to answer questions in this ...
OOI Early Career Workshops create opportunities for scientists to engage with the OOI and collaborate with peersSeptember 25, 2018
In the spring and summer of 2018, the OOI hosted five workshops for early-career scientists interested in learning more about the infrastructure and how to use data from the program in their work. The week-long data-oriented workshops were designed to inspire participants to pursue projects with OOI available resources.
A suite of community generated tools are now available to explore the Axial Seamount. These include a new Inflation Threshold Forecast web page created by Dr. Chadwick (Oregon State University and NOAA/PMEL) and Andy Lau (Oregon State University/CIMRS) and the Axial Seamount Earthquake Catalog created by Dr. William Wilcock (University of Washington).
