Brief description

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Myrmidon Reef in the central Great Barrier Reef off Townsville, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the existing reef communications tower and a single buoy which carries the actual sensors. \n \n Myrmidon Reef is on the edge of the continental shelf and so the station is designed to measure upwelling of water from the slope coming up and onto the continential shelf. The station is linked to stations at Rib Reef (mid-shelf) and Orpheus Island (inshore) to track upwelling water across the shelf.\n The project looks to deploy sensor networks at seven sites along the Great Barrier Reef to measure a range of physical parameters at a range of scales. The project will install communications, data and platform infrastructure that will support future sensor work looking at biological and chemical parameters.\n Wireless Sensor Networks Facility (formerly known as Facility for The Automated Intelligent Monitoring of Marine Systems (FAIMMS)), part of the Great Barrier Reef Ocean Observing System project (GBROOS) (IMOS)\n

Lineage

Statement: All sensors are factory calibrated and serviced every six months. \nScope Level Description: Sensors \nStatement: Data are checked against a set of rules and then flagged using the IODE set of flags. \n
