Southern Ocean Flux Station (SOFS) at (142.0°E, 46.8°S)
In November 2011, a MAPCO2 sensor was deployed on the Southern Ocean Flux Station (SOFS). The SOFS mooring is part of the Southern Ocean Automated Time Series Observations (SOTS) project and the Australian Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS). This time series is an Australian contribution to OceanSITES and is one of the few comprehensive Southern Ocean sites globally that provides high temporal resolution flux observations in sub-Antarctic waters.
Please visit the Australia's Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) website for more information.
