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.
Image of the week
Since 2018 OOI has deployed dissolved oxygen sensors with highly effective UV antifouling. OOI Endurance Array data are reviewed weekly with any quality issues noted. OOI is developing automated quality control algorithms and plans to roll these out this Fall. Shown here is the struggle in keeping equipment operational when marine life loves to inhabit it so much.

OOI brings data to your doorstep, without ever having to go to sea. Opportunities exist to customize OOI data by adding instruments or platforms to the existing infrastructure, proposing additional or modified sampling, participating in cruises, borrowing OOI equipment, or simply exploring real-time data to answer scientific questions. Explore the ways you can participate in the OOI.
