The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) program has created a set of Online Instrument Tables to provide the OOI user community with detailed descriptions of the instrumentation found throughout the OOI.
The OOI will consist of six arrays with a total of 771 instruments distributed throughout the 38 moorings, 12 seafloor instrument packages, and 27 mobile assets. OOI instruments will measure physical, biological, chemical, and geological properties of the ocean from the air-sea interface through the water column to the seafloor.
With this online tool, scientists, educators and the public will be able to examine the locations of instruments and their deployment depths within the arrays. Additionally, users can view high-level technical drawings of the OOI infrastructure, identify detailed instrument descriptions and see the connection each instrument has to the data products it will provide. The make and model of each instrument is also provided, when available (see contract awards for more information).
The program will continue to upgrade and maintain the online instrument tables as a critical resource for the OOI user community to explore the OOI program and all that it will offer for ocean observation, study, and research.
