Flanking Subsurface Mooring

« Back to Glossary Index

Flanking Subsurface Moorings are located at global sites and contain instruments fixed at specific depths along a mooring riser. The flotation buoy for subsurface moorings is located below the sea surface. As they have no surface expression, these moorings communicate and send data to shore via an acoustic link to nearby gliders.
