What is OOI?
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is a science-driven ocean observing network that delivers real-time data from more than 800 instruments to address critical science questions regarding the world’s oceans.
Funded by the National Science Foundation to encourage scientific investigation, OOI data are freely available online to anyone with an Internet connection.

Everything from sea lions napping on Endurance Arrays to big red jellies that investigated the ROV Ropos at the Regional Cabled Array location at the Southern Hydrate Ridge.

OOI brings data to your doorstep, without ever having to go to sea. Opportunities exist to customize OOI data by adding instruments or platforms to the existing infrastructure, proposing additional or modified sampling, participating in cruises, borrowing OOI equipment, or simply exploring real-time data to answer scientific questions. Explore the ways you can participate in the OOI.
