Altered Carbon: Improvement to CO2 Measurements Enhance OOI Data Quality

Global carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations are increasing in the atmosphere, largely due to the use of fossil fuels. The oceans are absorbing about 25-30 percent of the atmospheric CO2, resulting in a shift in seawater acid-base chemistry and a decrease in ocean pH, making seawater more acidic. To help scientists assess this changing ocean chemistry, […]

Assessment of OOI Endurance Array pCO2 Data Quality

Given the significant importance of understanding and modeling levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere (and its potential sources and sinks), Ocean-Atmosphere Exchange and Global Biogeochemistry and Carbon Cycling are two of the OOI’s primary science themes. We address these themes in part through measurements of the air and surface water partial pressure of carbon […]

Easy-to-use MATLAB Data Tools

  OOI data team members have  developed a new toolbox for downloading data from the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interface using MATLAB, making data access as easy as 1, 2, 3. The work expands on the existing tools available on OOI. This new toolbox covers data from moorings, gliders, and profilers in the OOI Coastal Arrays and […]

Notice: Regional Cabled Array

On Thursday, September 27th at 1938 PT, one of two chillers supporting power feed equipment at the Regional Cabled Array Shore Station had a fault which resulted in an automatic protective shutdown of the high voltage power supply and loss of power to both submarine cable lines. Power was restored to the system on Tuesday, […]
