Ocean Climate Stations

Meghan Cronin leads the Ocean Climate Stations group at NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL). Ocean Climate Stations are moored buoys that carry a suite of sensors to monitor important climate processes. PMEL's Ocean Climate Stations are part of the global network of OceanSITES time series reference sites. The OCS project also makes air-sea interaction observations from other types of autonomous platforms such as Saildrone -- a remotely controlled sailing vessel.
