New observation network will provide unprecedented, long-term view of life in the ocean twilight zone

All of these components will connect to the network’s buoys using acoustic signals underwater and an Iridium satellite link at the surface. All of these components will connect to the network’s buoys using acoustic signals underwater and an Iridium satellite link at the surface. “It will cover a really huge piece of the ocean,” says WHOI ocean ecologist Simon Thorrold, a Principal Investigator for the network. “Now, we’ll be able to get continuous measurements from a large chunk of the ocean twilight zone over significant periods of time. We play a leading role in ocean observation, and operate the most extensive suite of data-gathering platforms in the world.
