Welcome to the Endurance Array Preliminary Data Page

These pages provide a first look at the data to be available through the OOI. Please note, these have not been quality controlled.

The backbone of the Endurance Array includes two cross-shelf moored array lines, the Oregon Line (also called the Newport Line) and the Washington Line (also known as the rays Harbor Line). Each these lines contain three fixed sites spanning the slope (~500-600 m), shelf (~80-90 m) and inner-shelf (~25-30 m). The three sites across the shelf and slope are associated with unique physical, geological, and biological processes.

Additionally, Coastal gliders (Teledyne-Webb Slocum Gliders) will fly through the water column along saw-tooth paths, penetrating the sea surface and diving down to depth. These Coastal Gliders will be outfitted with one of two buoyancy engines allowing for maximum efficiency for either shallow (able to dive to 200 m) or deep (able to dive to 1000 m) dives. A roughly even combination of deep and shallow diving coastal gliders will be deployed, sufficient to survey the Endurance Array area.


Glider sampling area:

An array of ~6 gliders will travel along five east-west transect lines from approximately the 20-m isobaths to 126 W (and out to 128 W along the Oregon and Washington lines), as well as a north-south transect along 126 W and a north-south transect along the 200 m isobath.
