The Korean EC-1 mooring has been operated since 1996 and has produced more than 22 years of data. It is located in the deep channel between Japan Basin and Ulleung Basin (37.33N, 131.45E) in the southwestern East Sea (Japan Sea). The latest deployment (Leg-21) was done in July 2017 with an updated mooring design newly equipping two Sediment traps and two dissolved oxygen sensors in addition to sus ... More

The coastal regions of the Atlantic Ocean are major areas of economic resources and population density. They shelter a high biodiversity, sequester a large fraction of the anthropogenic CO2, constitute the main fishing zones of the basin, and attract an ever increasing residential and touristic population. Their dynamics are determined by interactions with the atmosphere, the open sea and local hu ... More

Spring blooms provide insight into the importance of physical versus ecological controls of ocean productivity and export, and potential responses to climate change. We present high temporal resolution records from the OceanSITES Southern Ocean Time Series autonomous moorings south of Australia, for physical drivers (temperature, salinity, surface mixed layer depth, currents, wind speeds, insolati ...

An SBE37 instrument has been deployed on the KEO mooring (32.3°N, 144.6°E) at a depth of 5,700m since 2012, as part of the OceanSITES deep microcat challenge. Fresh drift of 0.03 – 0.06 PSU has been observed each year in salinity, and with two alternating instruments. Each instrument is annually calibrated by Seabird before deployment and after recovery. The effect of switching between the ... More

Spatial and temporal variability of water mass characteristics and volume transports in the North Atlantic is monitored by fixed point observations of the NOAC (North Atlantic Changes) array at 47°N. Since April 2016, the NOAC array is maintained by IUP/Marum at the University of Bremen and the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in Hamburg. Located at the boundary between the subtropi ... More

The buoy observation station in Maldives, built by Maldives and our institute, is the first buoy station in the Maldives buoy observation network. The buoy station has been running well since its operation in October 2012, but there are also some minor problems. The meteorological and hydrological factors observed by the buoy include temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind speed, wind direction, ... More

A few years ago, a "challenge" was posted within OceanSITES to acquire a number of temperature/salinity instruments and operate these at great depths on existing OceanSITES platforms. This has matured to the degree that objectives and technical procedures are well-documented, and instruments have been deployed. The primary vendor (Sea-Bird) has committed to free instrument calibrations in ret ... More

Fixed point observatories in the Mediterranean Sea have a major contribution in monitoring physical and biogeochemical variables in the region. The capability of recording long-term, high quality time-series, using smart sensors, upgrades scientific knowledge regarding sea processes sensitive to climate change. Existing open sea multi-parametric moorings are located in the key zones and have been ... More

A shutdown of ocean convection in the subpolar North Atlantic, triggered by enhanced melting over Greenland, is regarded as a potential transition point into a fundamentally different climate regime. Noting that a key uncertainty for future convection resides in the relative importance of melting in summer and atmospheric forcing in winter, we investigate the extent to which summer conditions cons ...

Sustained, long-term ship-based biogeochemical (bgc) and ecological time series observations provide detailed insights into intra-disciplinary marine ecosystem processes, allow the establishment of ecological baselines, and provide the necessary information to capture interannual to decadal-scale variability. This not only enables the characterization of trends, but establishes the system’s conn ... More

With recent scientific and technological advancements, the oceanic skin layer is pushed into the global extent of biogeochemical processes and climate regulation due to its unique position between the ocean and atmosphere. However, technology to sample the skin layer remains challenging to deploy for long-term observations of the essential climate variables. Here, we report the development of a ro ... More

A proposal to NOAA Office of Observing and Monitoring Division (OOMD), titled “Diurnal cycle metrics from moored buoys as a baseline for assessing model and satellite resolved air-sea interaction” is currently pending. The project would create a set of diurnal cycle metrics that would be made available to the public through a project webpage hosted by NOAA PMEL. Metrics would be produced from ... More

Over the past decades, a considerable number of long-term mooring arrays has been installed in the Atlantic between 79°N and 34.5°S, capturing various components of the Atlantic large-scale circulation. Many of the arrays focus on the boundary currents (e.g. 52°N, MOVE, 11°S-W) particularly at the western rim of the large gyres. Others cover straits and passages (Fram Strait, Greenland Scotlan ...

The ALOHA Cabled Observatory (ACO) is a network of instruments and infrastructure on the sea floor, directly cabled to shore, north of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The site is connected to shore via a repurposed trans-Pacific telecommunications cable that provides power and Internet. This connection allows for real-time data streams from a typically under-sampled region of the ocean. The ACO includ ... More

In order to reinforce its contribution to the global ocean observing system, the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) deployed in June 2007 an oceanic-meteorological buoy (AGL Buoy) in the southern Bay of Biscay, whose mooring position at 2800 m depth was chosen to coincide with the position of a standard section- the Santander standard section - running since 1991 by the IEO. During this time, ... More
