Abstract:

The long term project goal is development and utilization of a bottom stationed autonomous ocean profiler for enhanced physical chemical and biological measurements in the coastal ocean.. The system is designed to allow bi-directional satellite communication, user programmability, and data storage and transmission in near real-time. It is envisioned that deployments of large numbers of BSOP systems, each equipped with a highly capable sensor suite, will provide synoptic, very low cost observations of the marine environment.
