COSEE Mid-Atlantic Coastal Observing Systems Center
The information collected from sensors, buoys, satellites, autonomous ocean-going vehicles, gliders, and land-based instruments is sent via telemetry to a data manager that relays it out over the Internet where scientists, resource managers, educators, students and the public can view and use it. This site describes the major components of ocean observing systems and provides additional observing resources, including international and Mid-Atlantic-specific observatories.
