The Coastal Pioneer Array will have a new home in the Southern Mid-Atlantic Bight in the spring of 2024.  Just like any move, there are lots of preparations necessary. In this case, test deployments are now taking place to ensure the Array can be in tune with its new environment.

Reporter Jennifer Allen provides insight into the ongoing preparations for the move and plans forward in an article in Coastal Review.
