Met Office and NOC enhance ocean observatory
Date:5/25/2010

The buoy has been modified from the standard Met Office design to accommodate additional observing equipment to receive and transmit, in real time, subsurface observations, which will be used by operational ocean forecasting models run by the Met Office. They will also be used by NOC scientists to assess variability and long-term changes in the ocean properties.

"We have wanted to deploy a moored buoy at the PAP site to provide meteorological information to complement subsurface measurements made by the NOC to better meet the requirements for climate monitoring, and to benefit scientific interpretation of data from the PAP," says Jon Turton of the Met Office: "This is just the start of the Met Office and NOC working more closely for mutual benefit."

The collaboration forms part of ongoing developments to the PAP-SO infrastructure, funded principally by the UK's Natural Environment research Council (NERC), with additional funding from the European Union.

Enhancements during 2010 include adding oxygen and sunlight sensors to the existing suite of upper-ocean biogeochemical sensors. The scientists are also developing near real-time data transmission from the abyssal seafloor via acoustic telemetry from a lander and digital time-lapse camera system.

These developments along with the Met Office collaboration contribute further to establishing the PAP-SO as a key internationally renowned ocean observatory. The site is an integral part of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) contributing to the Group on Earth Observations (GEO).

The May 2010 deployment will take place onboard the Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross during a research cruise from Vigo, Spain, to Immingham, UK (25 May 6 June).
