PAP October 2002

The PAP telemetry mooring was deployed early on 7th October 2002 during RV Discovery cruise D266. Unfortunately the top 150m of the mooring became detached on 10/12/2002. The telemetry kit is still transmitting data from some of the Microcat sensors and regularly giving positional data.
The equipment was recovered by RV Triton an 1st March 2003.

The equipment functioned as a float buoy while it was adrift, and that data can be viewed by clicking here.
