The global component of the OOI design includes a network of moorings at critical, yet under-sampled, high-latitude locations such as the Argentine Basin in the South Atlantic. Moorings located in the Argentine Basin support sensors for measurement of air-sea fluxes of heat, moisture and momentum, and physical, biological and chemical properties throughout the water column. The Global Argentine Basin Array is a combination of fixed platforms (moorings), moored profilers that address the requirement to sample the full water column, and mobile platforms (gliders) that provide simultaneous spatial and temporal sampling capabilities. The array is composed of a Surface Mooring containing fixed instruments situated on the buoy and through the upper 1500 m of the water column, a subsurface Global Profiler Mooring made up of two wire-following profilers, one operating from ~300 m to 2500 m and the second from ~2500 m to 4600 m, and two Flanking Moorings that form a triangular array ~62 km on a side. These Flanking Moorings have their uppermost flotation at ~30 m depth and instruments at discrete depths along the mooring line to a depth of 1500 m. Open-Ocean Gliders sample within and around the triangular array equipped with acoustic modems to relay data from the Flanking Moorings to shore via satellite telemetry. Profiling Gliders sample the upper water column near the Apex Profiler Mooring.

Use Limitations All OOI data including data from OOI core sensors and all proposed sensors added by Principal Investigators, will be rapidly disseminated, open, and freely available (within constraints of national security). Rapidly disseminated implies that data will be made available as soon as technically feasible, but generally in near real-time, with latencies as small as seconds for the cabled components. In limited cases, individual PIs who have developed a data source that becomes part of the OOI network may request exclusive rights to the data for a period of no more than one year from the onset of the data stream. The reliability, quality and completeness of data obtained through OOI are intended to be used in an education or research context. It is assumed that outages and errors can occur and are dealt with by the users of the data. These data and software are not for use in operational or decision-making settings. The OOI project makes reasonable efforts to ensure that the data provided are accurate. However, there may be no Quality Control (QC) performed on data acquired and provided through the OOI program, and there may be no Quality Assurance (QA) provided on information on those data sets. If QC/QA is performed, it is described in the metadata. The OOI program both produces and, through collaborations within the geosciences community, gains access to data sets which may be redistributed either directly or indirectly at no cost and with no restrictions. With regard to data distribution, all users must comply with any applicable U.S. export laws and regulations. The OOI Program is not responsible for the use of the data it provides.
