Redeployment of the E1 buoy for the Western Channel Observatory
Plymouth Marine Laboratory and The Marine Biological Association operate an array of autonomous buoys in the English Channel. Each buoy is equipped with an array of sensors to look at both atmospheric and marine parameters.
The moored buoy at “E1″, an established location for oceanographic and biological sampling, is due to be redeployed after winter maintenance. The E1 buoy is scheduled for deployment on Monday June 10, in collaboration with the Met Office and Trinity House.
Watch this space for news and hopefully some pictures – weather permitting!
