DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
A shallow water environmentaloceanographic measurement system for real time monitoring of specific parameters at a particular location is disclosed. A three point moored buoy is anchored over the particular location. Bottom mounted sensors to measure the specific parameters are situated generally within the area of the three point mooring area. Sensor data is transmitted via cable to the buoy from where it is telemetered to a shore station. Salt mounds located along the Gulf of Mexico in the states of Texas and Louisiana, if evacuated of their brine contents, could form extensive natural storage cavities. The brine content would be pumped out of these mounds and deposited via pipeline and diffuser into the Gulf of Mexico. It is desired to assess the total ecosystem impact on the receiving waters and biota from the discharge of these saturated brine solutions. Keywords Patents. aw
