Great South Bay Project
Buoy #1 - Real Time Data
|40o 41.924' N Latitude, 73o
05.211' W Longitude
Notice: The Great South Bay meteorlogical and oceanographic buoy was carried
off station by ice and ceased telemetering data on January 25th. The ice has
subsequently carried the buoy all the way to the vicinity of the New Inlet
where it was dropped in shallow waters. Efforts are underway to retrieve the
buoy and then it will take a month or more to rebuild all the instrumentation.
With luck, we should be back in business sometime in April.
Thanks to Mark DeAngelis and the West Sayville Boat Basin for their assistance in keeping the buoy system going.
