This summer’s exciting sea-going expedition in the Northeast Pacific to maintain the National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative Regional Cabled Observatory is underway, and you can join us at InteractiveOceans. Over the next several weeks, the University of Washington Cabled Array team will be adding novel sensors that allow a global audience to watch live […]
We need your help evaluating Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) data delivery systems and to assess the extent to which they meet the needs of the user community. The information we gather through this survey will be used to improve the current OOI data delivery systems and perhaps develop other systems that better meet the needs […]
Endurance Array Fall 2018 cruise data available through OOI Data Portal The Fall 2018 Endurance Array cruise on the R/V Sally Ride departed Seattle, Washington on September 16 and completed in Newport, Oregon on September 30. All uncabled moorings were recovered and newly refurbished moorings deployed in their place. Telemetered science data from this deployment […]
A Community Welcome from The OOI 2.0 Team The Ocean Observatories Initiative team is excited about implementation of OOI 2.0 and advancing this community facility over the next five years. Phase two of OOI began October 1, 2018 following the award by the National Science Foundation of a cooperative agreement to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) […]
Last month, the OOI hosted a workshop in Seattle, WA focusing on exploring research questions in deep ocean observing in the NE Pacific using nearby OOI arrays (Cabled Array, Endurance Array, Station Papa) and other regional observatories.
Stemming from the successful Cabled Array Hackweek in February 2018, the OceanHackweek last month set out to broaden their scope of data exploration to include all OOI assets as well as other large scale ocean observatories, such as Argo and the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).
“Having all of those sensors available at the same time as bioacoustics data is a huge opportunity for me and other scientists,” says Sato. “It is not just biology or physics, it is the coupling that is so critical. I think the OOI will provide a big opportunity for us to answer questions in this […]
In the spring and summer of 2018, the OOI hosted five workshops for early-career scientists interested in learning more about the infrastructure and how to use data from the program in their work. The week-long data-oriented workshops were designed to inspire participants to pursue projects with OOI available resources.
A suite of community generated tools are now available to explore the Axial Seamount. These include a new Inflation Threshold Forecast web page created by Dr. Chadwick (Oregon State University and NOAA/PMEL) and Andy Lau (Oregon State University/CIMRS) and the Axial Seamount Earthquake Catalog created by Dr. William Wilcock (University of Washington).
