AOML Director John Cortinas and AOML Deputy Director Molly Baringer hosted a team of National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) experts led by Director Bill Burnett last week. They toured AOML facilities and met with scientists to exchange ideas and further develop collaborations.

While NDBC’s focus is on operational ocean observations, the group saw many opportunities to share expertise in potential projects. AOML and NDBC have collaborated on programs such as the Port Meteorological Officers and the Voluntary Observing Ships program where drifter deployments and eXpendable BathyThermograph coordination have flourished for decades. Future projects could include collaborations with the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean Array, Prediction and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic Array, Saildrones, and Gliders.
