WARM 2020 #JW-2


Made by Pacific Gyre
Iridium ID # (IMEI = International Mobile Equipment Identity): 300234067939910

ocean temperature at nominal depths (m): 3, 10, 12
ocean pressure depth: 10m

The WARM buoy is designed to measure near-surface temperature and bio-optics in the Arctic Ocean. These buoys have a string of thermistors, similar to UpTempO buoys, as well as a suite of other optical, bio-optical, and CTD sensors. More info on the US WARM program is here: https://sites.wp.odu.edu/BORG/current-projects/temperature-and-irradiance-measurements-in-the-arctic/. This particular buoy is owned by JAMSTEC; their WARM buoy web site is here: http://www.jamstec.go.jp/arctic/warm_buoy2020/index.html. The bio sensor data has not been reporting as of 4/21/2020.

SUMMARY

The plot below shows the path of WARM 2020 #JW-2 colored by month. The flag marks the buoy's current location. Black contours show two isobaths: 28 m ("short buoy" max depth: e.g., 2011 APLIS buoy) and 60 m ("standard buoy" max depth).
Buoy Name: WARM 2020 #JW-2

TEMPERATURE TIME SERIES

The temperature time series for each thermistor is shown below, plotted against day of the year. Shading on the plot delineates months.

SALINITY TIME SERIES

Salinity reported by a CTD sensor at 4m, nominal.

OCEAN PRESSURE AND SEA LEVEL PRESSURE

This plot shows the ocean pressure(s) from the barometers placed at nominal depths (blue), and sea level pressure in red.


BATTERY VOLTAGE/SUBMERGENCE PERCENT



The battery voltage time series for this buoy is shown in red below. Also shown (in gray) are the battery voltage time series' for all buoys to date.

Derived Quantities


VELOCITY TIME SERIES

One to three hourly velocity is on the left axis.Distance between the buoy's start point and end point each day is shown in red on the right axis.Note that the total displacement of the buoy each day (red) is generally less than what one would calculate from the hourly velocities.
