Profiling Buoy: meteorological parameters monitoring

The aim of the profiling float is to measure the meteorological parameters of the air and the physico-chemical parameters of the sea. One buoy was made to be deployed by the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography in Marseille.

The buoy is equipped with:


 Air sensors: weather station, GPS
