Plymouth Marine Laboratory Chooses STOR-X

Jan 01 2000

Planet Ocean Ltd of Surrey UK announce that Plymouth Marine Laboratory, have ordered two Satlantic STORX buoy instrumentation packages for their offshore data buoys to be deployed in the South Western approaches. The buoys will provide continuous monitoring of the two historical stations L4 (10 nautical miles south of Plymouth) and E1 (25 nautical miles south of Plymouth), which have been sampled for almost a century.

The data produced by the buoys will form part of the Western Channel Observatory, which is investigating ecosystem dynamics linking to model enhancement and providing data for model and satellite validation. The buoys will be deployed in spring 2008 and will provide 'live' insitu data to the observatory website. The flexibility of the STORX logger allows for simple connection to Satlantic optical packages and ISUS Nitrate analysers along with a meteorological head and water quality package.

The STORX controls data acquisition, and storage as well as passing the data to the telemetry systems. The buoys will provide a core measurement suite but also provide a platform for future instrument development and testing. The STORX logger will provide 8 digital and 4 analogue ports for this purpose with live telemetry to shore via a UHF communication system.
