Speed installation of system to monitor vital signs of global ocean, scientists urge
Date:10/31/2010

es (www.ARGO.net), deployed at a cost of $15 million per year to measure pressure, salinity and temperature at depths down to 2 km and return to the surface every 10 days to transmit readings via satellite. POGO officials say up to 10 times as many floats are needed to produce a high-resolution global picture of shifting marine conditions, incorporating biological and optical measurements;

  • Three Equatorial moored buoys, each valued at $5 million, to measure temperature, currents, waves and winds, salinity and carbon dioxide.

  • Some 60 globally-distributed reference stations (www.oceansites.org), each valued at $1 million, measuring the oceans' physical, chemical and biogeochemical properties throughout the water column;

  • Deep Ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis (DART / www.ndbc.noaa.gov/dart/dart.shtml) stations, consisting of a surface buoy and a seafloor bottom pressure recorder that both reports water temperature and detects tsunamis. When a potential tsunami is detected, the buoy reports measurements every 15 seconds for several minutes, followed by 1-minute averages for 4 hours. The US array, completed in 2008, totals 39 stations in the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and Caribbean Sea. Australia, Chile, Indonesia, India and Thailand have also deployed tsunami warning systems.

    • An expanding global Ocean Tracking Network (http://oceantrackingnetwork.org), currently valued at $150 million, which allows scientists to follow the migrations of tagged salmon and other animals.

    • Thousands of pelagic "animal oceanographers" spanning 50 species -- elephant seals, tunas, white sharks, leatherback turtles, squid and others -- equipped with electronic tags that record the light, depth, temperatur
