Standard arctic buoy configuration
Welcome to the UpTempO Buoy Project web siteUpTempO buoys are designed to measure ocean temperature in the euphotic (light-influenced) surface layer of the Polar Oceans. These relatively inexpensive ocean buoys are designed to be easily deployed in open water or sea ice – covered conditions. As sea ice thins and retreats more and more each summer, the magnitude of ocean surface warming is accelerating. Our main goal is to measure this warming.
FundingWe are very grateful for support from the following:
We also thank the manufacturers of our buoys who have worked with us as a team to develop these exciting instruments.
And last but not least, we are deeply indebted to our colleagues who have spent extra time during their field work to deploy our buoys. You rock.
