The Northeast Fisheries Science Center has been deploying XBTs, collecting surface salinity samples and towing a continuous plankton recorder from the CMV Oleander since 1977 as part of their ship of opportunity program (SOOP). Volunteer observers rode the Oleander from New Jersey to Bermuda and back at monthly intervals deploying the instruments and collecting the data.  In early 2014 budget cutbacks caused NOAA to cease support for the Oleander XBT and TSG programs. These components have since been picked up by SBU’s and URI’s NSF-supported Oleander Project. The data are presented on this web site and also forwarded on to the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorlogical Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, Florida as part of a much larger global observation program (AOML GOOS Center).
