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.

Buoy silhouette. An OOI Coastal Surface Mooring is a silhouette against the sunset in preparation for later deployment. The dark panel in the lower right serves as a mount for solar panels and as a wind vane to keep the "bow" oriented into the wind. The "fingers" sticking out on the upper right are the sensing elements of a sonic anemometer.
