UPDATE: Irminger Sea Surface Mooring Flyover Conducted

On 12 October, 2017, the Surface Buoy on the OOI Global Irminger Sea Array Surface Mooring stopped all communications.  There remains no indication as to what may have caused the outage.

On 26 October an aerial survey and broad area search was conducted at the Irminger Sea Surface Buoy site and surrounding areas. The surface mooring was not sighted.

The next OOI Maintenance Cruise to the area is scheduled for June 2018. At which time a new Surface Mooring will be deployed.
