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.

Nico Llanos (arm in the air) successfully oversaw the deployment of the flanking mooring B deployment on Station Papa. It was his first time as deck lead. Llanos is part of a ten-person team aboard the R/V Sikuliaq for a 19-day expedition to deploy six moorings – three for OOI, two for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and one for the University of Washington. You can follow the progress of Station Papa 9 here.
