Coastal Endurance
A Surface Mooring is a type of mooring that contains a surface buoy floating on the sea surface and instruments located at fixed depths through the water column. The surface buoy provides a platform on which to secure surface instruments, allowing for the collection of data in the air and in the water, as well as an antenna to transmit data to shore via satellite.

Status: Not Operational
10/11/17 4/2/18

10/11 lost wind turbine 2 (out of 2)
10/24 batteries not recharging sufficiently. To conserve power, the MFN was turned off and the NSIF was reduced to 1 hour communications. The OPTAA is the only instrument on the MFN without internal batteries.
11/8 restored power to entire mooring after a period of strong wind (utilizing WT1)
