Abstract:

The Multi-disciplinary Ocean Sensors for Environmental Analyses and Networks MOSEAN project has the long-term goal of developing and testing new technologies that will lead to increased observations that are essential for solving a variety of interdisciplinary oceanographic problems of societal importance. These include biogeochemical cycling, climate change effects, ocean pollution, harmful algal blooms HABs, ocean ecology, and underwater visibility. The collective MOSEAN sensors will be able to sample key variables that are vital to solve problems in near shore to coastal to open ocean environments.
