Mooring Positions

Important Notice: Broad-scale surveys need to be aware that moorings may be located near Broad-scale standard stations #9, 12, 20, 25 and 39 and elsewhere. Watch out for them so that you do not tow too near them. Give guard moorings a wide berth when sampling.

In general, Science Buoys have sensors and instrumentation on the mooring line. Guard Buoys typically have no instrumentation, however this is not always the case. Please check with the investigator for further details. Maps of the mooring locations superimposed on the broad-scale track line are available: Map 1 or Map 1 as tif file and Map 2 (or Map 2 as tif file).

Historical Record

For historical reasons, here is a list of mooring positions for our program as they appeared on our Web site in the past.
