OCS collaborates with a number of partners to enhance the types of data collected from OCS moorings. Links to the data from those partners will navigate you out of the OCS webpages
PMEL Carbon Group
A MAPCO2 system, provided by the PMEL Carbon Group, measures the CO2 levels in the atmosphere just above the sea surface, and dissolved in the sea surface waters. For plots of the 30 day and long term records, please visit the PMEL Carbon Group pages for each specific site:
Carbon data records from the KEO and Papa sites are archived and made available through the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC). Carbon data from the ARC deployment are not yet available.
Data sets for pH, turbidity, and chlorophyll fluorescence are not yet available online. Please contact Dr. Adrienne Sutton (firstname.lastname@example.org) for data.
Waverider at Papa
(University of Washington Applied Physics Lab)
A Waverider mooring has been deployed near the OCS Papa mooring since 2010. Wave height and wave period data from this mooring may be viewed through the CDIP website here. A sample plot is shown in the right sidebar.
Gas Tension and Dissolved Oxygen
(University of Washington Dept. of Oceanography)
Gas tension and dissolved oxygen data from KEO and Papa are available through the NOAA OCADS website. Please contact Dr. Steve Emerson (email@example.com) with questions.
Data from KEO and Papa sites are available by clicking the appropriate site on the map here:
Plots of available data from KEO (top) and Papa (bottom) are shown below. Click images to enlarge. (NOTE: Measurements at the KEO site were discontinued after the 2017 deployment.)
Sample plot of CO2 data from the KEO mooring. If the level in the atmosphere (light blue) is greater than in the ocean (dark blue), CO2 is being absorbed by the ocean. If reversed, CO2 is being emitted by the ocean into the air. See links at left for most recent data plots.
