Abstract:

Instruments to measure air temperature and pressure, wind speed and direction, water temperature and conductivity, and current speed and direction were installed on a large, un-manned buoy, together with equipment to telemeter the data ashore. On shore, a terminal was installed to receive, store and display the data. The purpose of the installation was to gain experience with instrumentation of this type. To date the installation is about four years old. The report discusses the design, installation and maintenance experience obtained from the instrumentation. Author
