Projects

CeNCOOS announces the start of a new project to continuously monitor subsurface ocean conditions along a 300km track line off Trinidad Head. These measurements fill an important gap in oceanographic observations between Newport, OR, and Monterey Bay, CA; an area that has been identified in many California Current plans as a key sampling location.
