Brief description

The Flat Top Banks mooring (IMOS platform code ITFFTB) was most recently deployed on 31/05/2011 at (12.29 S, 128.48 E). The site depth is 107 m.

It is one of four regional shelf moorings located in the Timor Sea, extending from the Timor Trough to Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. These moorings comprise the Indonesian Throughflow array, which was deployed in June 2011. This is an important first step in the enhanced monitoring of northern Australian waters. These shelf moorings complement the three deep-water moorings deployed in the Timor Passage and Ombai Strait to monitor inter-basin Indian-Pacific Ocean exchange.

Processed data from the first two deployments (Jun 2010 and Jan 2011) are now available.

This mooring was decommissioned in 2019.
