  • About the Edition

    An expendable, self-deploying mooring (XMOOR) for shallow water applications has been developed to address Navy requirements for environmental monitoring. The project has been conducted jointly between the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Naval Research Laboratory at Stennis, MS. WHOI has taken the lead on the mechanical design of the system while NR has developed the electronics. Eight prototype XMOOR systems have been built. They are designed for water depths between 10 and 100m, for deployments of up to 3-months duration, and for automatic deployment. Their sensor suite includes barometrc pressure, air temperatue, water temperature at up to 25 levels, and conductivity and pressure at up to 3 levels. Data telemetry is accomplished via the Argos DCS and by line-of-sight VH confguration of the data collection program. This report describes the XMOOR mechanical system. The data collection and telemetry systems are described separately in (1) and (2).

    Prepared for the Office of Naval Research under Contract NC; NR and the National Science Foundation, Office for the International Decade of .   We describe physical oceanographic conditions around the S1 biogeochemical mooring site (30°N, °E) between February and July At the S1 mooring site, there is a clear seasonal variability of the mixed layer depth, wind forcing as well as horizontal kinetic energy in a near-inertial band. Interannual variability of the winter mixed layer was observed.

    Using a biophysical mooring as a sentinel for ecosystem change: The story of M2 In MTS/IEEE Oceans 17 Anchorage, Anchorage, Alaska, 18–21 September , Available at IEEE Xplore () Sep The development of low-cost instrumentation plays a key role in marine environmental studies and represents one of the most innovative aspects of current oceanographic research. These kinds of devices can be used for several applications, ranging from vertical profilers to stand-alone systems, and can be installed on different platforms (buoys, Voluntary Observing Ships, underwater vehicles.

    The Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth (CTD) sensor is one of the most used instruments in the Oceanographic field. These devices are the number one, most important sensor for any research of. averages about every 8 to 9 months (Leben, ).There is some evidence of a higher probability of separation during the spring and fall (Hall and Leben, ), but there is notable variability in the timing of terms of mechanisms, Sturges et al. () suggested that these separation events may be influenced by to day signals propagating upstream into the Gulf from the. mooring pattern at a conventional pier. These, along with some guidelines for achieving an efficient mooring arrangement, are outlined in the following sections. Mooring Forces In the past, mooring arrangements were generally devised on the basis of operating experience. It was, and still is in many instances, common practice to run out the.
