Please note: Although the nominal location of the KEO mooring is 32.4°N 144.6°E the actual anchor location has varied by as much as 20 km from this position during the multiple deployments. The KEO mooring utilizes a slack line design and its watch circle is approximately 13 km in diameter. A composite plot of position data from all deployments can be viewed here and the watch circle for the present deployment can be viewed here. The buoy position time series is available in ascii or netcdf format and is included in the OceanSITES data files |
Also note that since this is a slack-line mooring, the length along the mooring line cannot be used as a proxy for sensor depths, which will at times be shallower. Instead, you must use the water pressure, which is measured by several sensors, and calculated at the others, to determine sensor depths.
