Flanking Subsurface Mooring B

Reference Designator
GA03FLMB
Array Name
Global Argentine Basin
Description
Flanking Subsurface Moorings are located at global sites and contain instruments fixed at specific depths along the mooring riser. The flotation buoy for subsurface moorings is located below the sea surface. As they have no surface expression, these moorings communicate and send data to shore via an acoustic link to nearby gliders.
