NEMO servicing and redeployment

After a successful recovery of the NOAA-sponsored NEMO (Northwest Enhanced Moored Observatory) ChaBa surface buoy and a nearby subsurface profiling mooring (NEMO Subsurface), we'll be working over the winter to improve the real-time capability, power consumption, and durability of both moorings, re-deploying in the spring.   These moorings are state-of-the-art, taking advantage of various new technologies including no-cost VHF data transfer and new instrumentation developed by Wetlabs, SeaBird, Satlantic and SAMI.  Moorings are designed to deliver data back to shore in near real-time, with public access to data provided by NVS.  

The moorings will be redeployed as soon as weather and scheduling allow - no later than May 2012.
