COSYNA_MUO node system is under development (will be operational in 2020).
It will provide power, network connection and server support for the permanent operation of in situ sensor systems (will have 6 underwater pluggable access points for network and power, and a standard sensor carrier with an ADCP, a CTD plus Chl-a fluorescence, O2 and turbidity sensors).

A standard sensor carrier with an ADCP, a CTD plus Chl-a fluorescence, O2 and turbidity sensors

Modality of access under this proposal: MoA1/MoA2. UA:2 weeks. Modality used to declare access costs: TA-AC 

 

 

Services currently offered: All data from the COSYNA nodes are
