Brief description

A round 1.4m yellow buoy has been deployed in Little Pioneer Bay, Orpheus Island, just off the research station in the central part of the Great Barrier Reef. \n \nThe buoy is configured as a sensor-float with a Campbell Scientific logger, a spread-spectrum radio for communicating with the base station (located near the Research Station) a surface mounted (60cm under the water surface) thermistor and an inductive modem to support a range of inductive sensors, initialy this will be a SeaBird SBE39 measuring temperature and pressure (depth). \n \nThe float is moored at the entrance to Little Pioneer Bay, just deep of the reef front and will be used to measure the water entering the bay with particular interest in warm water pushing up into the bay. The data will support work being done in the bay by James Cook University researchers. \n \nThe unit will be serviced every six months and will be used in the future for attaching new sets of sensors.\n The buoy is one of two buoys and three relay-poles being deployed on Orpheus Island as part of the GBROOS Project. The design looks to measure the impact of warm water pushing in from the Coral Sea onto the reef flat at the northern end of the island, through the channel to Pelorus Island and around onto the land side of the island. These events are linked to coral bleaching and other climate impacts. \n \nThe buoys initially have a Campbell Scientific loggers powered off two 5W solar panels, a Garmin GPS unit and one thermistor located at the base of the buoy around 60cm below the water line.
