|Definition||An open-ocean buoy that gives you access to real-time ocean data including wind, waves, and sea surface temperatures. It collects 3D displacement time series, and calculates the wave spectrum, which is stored onboard and can be transmittedthrough the dashboard. Data collected include: surface wave spectrum (swell, sea, period, direction), wind speed/direction, surface drift/direction, and sea surface temperature (SST). Deployment options include: free Floating, as a mooring or in an array. Raw sensor data can be accessed via an onboard SD card. Real-time data can be transmitted via iridium satellite. The SST sensor has an accuracy of 0.1 degrees Celsius and resolution of 0.02 degrees Celsius. The instruments wave frequency range is 0.03-1 Hz (30s to 1s), it's sampling rate is 2.5 Hz (Nyquist at 1.25Hz), its wave displacement accuracy is approximately +/- 2cm (depending on field of view, weather conditions, and GPS system status), its wave direction resolution is 0 - 360 degrees (full circle). It is fully solar-powered.|
