- Data from the research buoy
On 7th November 2017 the Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences deployed an oceanographic research buoy in the Słupsk Channel.
The deployment was carred from the board of the IO PAN research vessel r/v Oceania.
Buoy is a component of the Euro-Argo Research Infrastructure built by IO PAN as a part of the Argo Poland program.
Obtaining and equipping of the buoy was possible thanks to cooperation with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and the University of Gdańsk.
The buoy (OCEANOR type) transmits oceanographic and meteorological data via a satellite Iridium system.
On 7th February 2018 the research buoy was pulled out, then re-deployed in the same place on 5th May 2019.
