Engineering instruments provide additional measurements about the ocean environment, or the functioning of individual infrastructure components (like internal housing temperature and humidity, or ground fault detectors). These measurements are key for calibration and computation of data products from OOI science sensors.

As preparations continue, WHOI Senior Engineering Assistants Jim Dunn (left) and Kris Newhall (right) prepare surface buoys for the Pioneer Array Coastal Profiler Moorings. The buoy towers house electronics and antennas (white cylinders) to enable real-time data transfer and two-way command and control from shore.
