Sofar Ocean

In this Marine Technology Society webinar, Sofar and Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary discuss how FGBNMS uses the real-time surface and subsurface observations made by its Spotter Platform to track environmental conditions near the region’s coral reefs.

FGBNMS research specialist Ryan Hannum details how Spotter data streamlines a wide variety of operational efforts, from identifying coral bleaching events to making go / no go decisions for offshore site visits.

A questions and answers session follows the presentation.
