The PAP1 observatory hosts a suite of meteorological, physical and biogeochemical sensors. The most current data are available from the deployment in July 2019
July 2019 – 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.
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.
After recovery of each deployment, data are archived at the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and can be accessed at: BODC PAP Collection
