NDBC and Sofar agree to three year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement

The National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) and Sofar Ocean are partnering to advance marine observation, expand access to real-time ocean data, and accelerate environmental monitoring and research.

“As the premier buoy observation group for NOAA’s National Weather Service, NDBC has a responsibility to continuously improve. Having accurate and reliable in-situ data is necessary for tropical storm modeling, emergency planners, researchers, maritime commerce and public marine recreational use. The opportunity to work with Sofar Ocean and their team of experts is exciting and has significant potential to benefit observations and the understanding of our environment,” said Randy Stewart, Engineer and NDBC-Sofar Ocean CRADA Principal Investigator.
