Description

Purchase of a moored data buoy. This field large scale facility will be installed in the UnderwaterBiotechnological Laboratory area and data will be conveyed to the receiving IMBG land facilities via VHF in real-time. The unit will be used for the long term support of all the in-situ experiments via the long-term monitoring of the meteorological conditions at the sea surface level (wind speed and direction, air temperature and pressure, relative humidity, solar and infrared (IR) radiation) as well as of major hydrological and oceanographic parameters throughout the water column (wave height and period, current speed and direction, temperature, salinity, turbidity, pH, oxygen, and conductivity of water).

Expected cost: 115,000 €.
