Hawaii Air-sea Logging Experiment

Current Mooring Positions

position plot

The HALE ALOHA mooring has a "position only" ARGOS transmitter attached to the tower. This allows us to track the mooring watch circle and to alert us to any abnormal behavior as might occur if the mooring cable were to part in heavy seas. This graph shows the positions received since HALE ALOHA (on the left) was re-deployed on 28 January 2007. The perimeter of Station ALOHA is also shown along with the WHOTS mooring (towards the bottom). The red dot shows the last known position of each mooring, while the pink line shows the previous day's drift track.
