This summer’s Regional Cabled Array (RCA) 44-day expedition (May 30-July 12, 2019) onboard the R/V Atlantis was highly successful with the completion of all tasks scheduled for this annual maintenance and operations cruise. One hundred forty-nine out of 151 RCA Core and PI instruments are operational, all three instrumented Deep Profiler vehicles and instrumented Science […]
Data from the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Global Irminger Sea Array contributed to the longest continuous record of total volume transport of water in the Deep Western Boundary Current. This current, in the subpolar North Atlantic, travels southwest along the continental slope off of Greenland and is considered a significant part of the global climate […]
NOTE: Video of this event available here. Fast forward to about 52:00 to get past the distorted audio. The National Science Foundation will host “Science in the Deep,” a Facebook Live event with researchers aboard R/V Atlantis on Wednesday, June 26, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern. The Atlantis team will be off the coast of […]
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 […]
