NOAA Smart Bouy - Gooses Reef

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Eastern
Location: Gooses Reef

NOAA and DNR partnered together to launch the most recent smart buoy at the Gooses Reef. The Buoy will record and send crucial data in the area it was located. Things like, dissolved oxygen, air temperature, water temperature, Ph, water salinity and many more parameters. Below is a video of the anchor (3 Train wheels, just above 2500 pounds), the buoy and the bottom monitor. The total launch took around 2 hours and what you see is the shortened version of it. You can access the information from this buoy and any other smart buoy located in Maryland on www.buoybay.org.
