Marine mechanic Ethan Morris works with Scripps oceanographer Uwe Send aboard research vessel SOCIB to deploy a mooring – the black and brightly-colored spheres – off the island of Mallorca in early September to collect real-time information about circulation in the Mediterranean Sea.

As part of the Office of Naval Research-funded project Coherent Lagrangian Pathways from the Surface Ocean to Interior (CALYPSO) Departmental Research Initiative, Send is working with the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System (SOCIB).

“The deployment was successful, and we are now receiving data every 2 hours on our internal website,” Send writes.
