Wireless buoys take pulse of the Salish Sea


I recently learned about a new initiative that is wirelessly networking environmental sensors on buoys around the Salish Sea.  Developed by a wireless company called Intellicheck/Mobilisa in Port Townsend, most of the buoys provide real-time weather data, video, and/or surface water measurements.  The NPB-1 buoy, however, offers real-time profile data from north-central Puget Sound (temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, horizontal current velocity, chlorophyll a, turbidity, and transmittance from 5-70m, off Point Wells, near Edmonds).  I’m also finding it useful to get live video from the north Marrowstone buoy when I’m trying to figure out what’s making an unusual sound on the nearby hydrophone at the PT Marine Science Center.
