Deepwater Mooring Designs for Ocean Observatory Science
Abstract:Mooring systems that deliver power and data communication to sub-sea instrumentation figure prominently in future plans to build ocean observatories. Currently, this technology is immature and technological advancements need to be made before such systems are ready to be routinely implemented. This paper describes the current state of the art in mooring systems appropriate to the deepwater ocean observatory context and outlines the technological challenges that need to be addressed in order to realize moored ocean observatories as envisioned for the next generation of ocean observing systems.
