Oceans of data from world-first IMOS buoy deployment

This year on World Oceans Day IMOS is celebrating the successful retrieval of the first weather buoy deployed in the remote Southern Ocean.

Marine and climate scientists are still analysing the wealth of data relayed back to shore by the South Ocean Flux Station about this climatically important region of the world. The data includes hourly observations of wind, temperature, humidity, air pressure, sunlight and rain.
