New CBIBS Reporting Observations from the Mouth of York River at York Spit

The CBIBS field and technical team, in collaboration with partners from NOAA Sanctuaries and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, has deployed a CBIBS buoy at York Spit, at the mouth of the York River.

Following a brief ceremony on July 18, the buoy was lifted into the water off the dock at the VIMS boat basin and moved out to the deployment site. The buoy was anchored in place, and CBIBS technical staff then worked to secure sensors and instruments to the buoy. IT specialists made sure that data could flow from the buoy, over cellular network, to a computer on shore that collects all the data--so it can then be accessed by this website, free mobile apps, and 877-BUOY-BAY.
