The PAP1 observatory hosts a suite of meteorological, physical and biogeochemical sensors. The most current data are available from the deployment in Apr 2017.
May 2017 – The PAP observatory was successfully serviced and deployed on our recent cruise, on RRS Discovery.
The system is working well and telemetering data in near real time.
We are currently calibrating the logged data from the delayed mode instruments from 2016/17. We will make those available as soon as we have quality checked them.
A diverse range of Essential Climate variables are measured and sampled at the PAP site from the atmosphere and surface ocean to the seafloor. Seafloor sampling includes trawling, coring, towed camera systems from a research ship and time-lapse photography. Since 2002 many of the upper ocean measurements (0-1000m) have been transmitted in near real-time.
