Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) has outfitted two of its ocean-going research vessels, the R/V Point Sur and R/V John H. Martin, with underway data acquisition systems (UDAS) and has a third UDAS that is portable and can be used on smaller vessels for near-shore studies. The systems vicariously collect water temperature, salinity, transmittance and chlorophyll fluorescence while conducting research cruises.
The MLML UDAS website provides specifics on all the instrumentation and links to all the data from the R/V Point Sur and R/V John H. Martin and the portable system; data can be downloaded as a text file or displayed graphically, as above.
