LOBO 70 Casco Bay 1


Maine EPSCoR SEANET Buoy Network is developing oceanographic models of factors which control the productivity of Maine's coastal waters in three bioregions (southern, central and down east Maine), supplemented by hourly monitoring of biophysical parameters in 6 coastal regions through LOBO buoys in the more sheltered waters, and at the mouths of the bays in more exposed conditions using buoys developed at the University of Maine. During the fall of 2015 and throughout 2016, 2 LOBO and 1 U Maine buoys are deployed in the Damariscotta River estuary (upper and middle LOBO, outer U Maine) and the Saco Bay region (Saco River and Scarborough Marsh LOBO, Saco Bay U Maine). From 2017-2019, buoys will be moved to our other sites in Casco Bay, Penobscot Bay, Cobscook Bay, and the Jonesport area. This streaming buoy data is provisional subject to calibration.
