The OSSE group performs a field deployment in the mid-Atlantic bight November 2-13, 2009. It involves the coordination and integration of various data sources, technologies and observing assets as part of an ocean observing simulation experiment. Thanks everyone for the contributions and participation.
Science question: Investigate the effect of fall/winter storms on currents and mixing of the upper layers. Investigate the timing and initiation of the winter bloom off the mid-Atlantic coast.
Technology goal: Investigate and demonstrate the successful integration of observation mission and control technologies in an integrated data distribution environment.
- In-situ assets (Satellites, coastal radar)
- Satellite: SST, Ocean color
- Satellite: EO-1 (requested several passes) Hyperion
- Codar HF radar
- Mobile assets (Gliders, AUVs)
- Rutgers SLOCUM gliders RU5, RU15, RU21, RU23 deployed (some standard mission, some taskable)
- U.Delaware may operate one glider covering the southern area
- MIT - On-board autonomy (Back-seat driver)
- NUWC - IVER2 AUV (Hammerhead)
- Cal.Poly - IVER2 AUV
- Rutgers REMUS AUV
- Ships: Arabella booked for the entire week 11/2
- Operational numerical models (see also numerical models detail page)
- OSSE Data Portal: Operated by JPL (YI, Peggy), based on JPL OurOceanPortal
- Shore side planning: JPL (Steve, David T) Waypoint and mission planning and simulation (see OSSE technology integration)
