Spotter 3's cellular-enabled High Data Rate (HDR) mode allows you to send 1000x more data at a fraction of the cost.
The story of "Grandpa Spotter," an ocean buoy that traveled nearly 20,000 miles in the Pacific Ocean over the course of three plus years.
Sofar’s marine weather forecasts and Spotter buoy data help The Ocean Cleanup understand metocean conditions and plastic drift patterns near the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world.
Hurricane Ian was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever reach the U.S. Observations of wave spectra made by Spotter buoys in the Gulf of Mexico during Ian offer insights about storm wave magnitude, direction, and frequency.
Understanding the components of the wave spectrum and how the assimilation of real-time observations of wave spectra produce marine weather forecast improvements.
A closer look at how ECMWF data enhances Sofar's global wave forecasting system and Marine Weather API.
Backyard Buoys, an Indigenous community-led ocean observing project, has been awarded a $4.98 million cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator program.
In April 2022, a large wave unexpectedly wiped out the lineup at Mavericks, a world-renowned surf spot in Northern California. Our Spotter buoy near the break captured compelling data about the origin and nature of the massive swell.
