PAP April 2013

18 January 2014 Despite worsening weather the team on the RV Celtic Explorer were able to recover the PAP ODAS buoy and the sensor frame today. The data from the sensors will now be downloaded and the mooring examined to try to determine the reason for the failure.

20 December 2013 The stormy weather seems to have taken its toll on the PAP mooring. The last 30m microcat data was received at 09:45 on the 18th December, then sometime after 03:00 on the 20th December the surface mooring moved off station. The buoy is moving steadily to the east, as shown on the following map.

11 September 2013

Between 11:30 and 15:30 the mooring was lifted during the JC090 OSMOSIS cruise to investigate the cause of communication failure between the sensor frame and the surface buoy.

14 May 2013

At around 12:00 on the 14th May the sensor frame stopped communicating with the surface buoy. The sensors on the keel of the buoy, and the meteorological data are still being sent and these pages will continue to be updated with those data and graphs. All the sensors in the frame at 30m will continue logging data to their individual storage, and this data will be recovered during the next full service.

RRV James Cook on cruise JC085 has successfully serviced the PAP moorings. The buoy deployed in January which only transmitted meteorological data has been replaced by a system with also a full suite of oceanographic sensors.
