PAP June 2018

The June 2018 mooring was deployed on cruise JC165.

Below are the graphs currently being generated in near-real time from data being gathered at PAP and transmitted via iridium servers.

Other data are being collected at the site but are not being transmitted in near-real time.
There are problems with the data from several of the Met sensors and so air temperature, humidity and wave parameters are not being reported.

Data Extraction

Below are links to extract subsets of the real-time data collected during this deployment. Please note these are raw data as received from the sensors. They are NOT processed or calibrated and as such are not identical to the displayed graphs above. Each of these cruises are described in a cruise report which can be accessed from the cruises tab.


Seafloor (4800 m)

Seafloor samples have been taken at the PAP site for over 20 years. Many methods can only be achieved from research ships but some (time-lapse camera) is autonomous for high resolution long-term sampling.
