MOSEAN HALE-ALOHA Mooring (22.8°N, 158.1°W)
A MAPCO2 system was deployed on the HALE-ALOHA (H-A) mooring from August 2004 through July 2007 near the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) site. The mooring was located ~100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii. Having a mooring co-located with the shipboard HOT time-series site provides the opportunity to examine high frequency variability in-between times when the ship visits the site (approximately one week per month) and the shipboard data provide a wide variety of information that can be used to interpret the observed variations at the site that would not be possible from the mooring alone.
Please visit the MOSEAN Website for more information.
Note: The H-A mooring was discontinued in July 2007. The time-series has continued on the WHOTS mooring.
