Week of 6/2: System status NORMAL. To check individual assets and information, visit ioos.us and/or the Environmental Sensor Map.

This project will transition an existing National Data Buoy Center meteorological buoy into a multi-purpose ecosystem monitoring buoy that will provide in situ real-time data and information on ocean conditions and the acoustic environment. Ultimately the developed platform will create efficiencies that support NOAA’s ability to monitor the ocean holistically. The new platform will be suitable to deploy nationwide to meet the rising need to monitor a changing marine environment. These observations inform weather forecasting, safe commercial and recreational navigation, state and federal environmental and water quality management, offshore wind development, as well as oceanographic, chemical, biological and climate research.
