Some Sensors Down on First Landing Buoy

Submitted by david.riddel on 01/12/2012

Soon after the CBIBS field team got the First Landing buoy back up and running from repairs to damage from Hurricane Irene, the buoy sustained additional damage to its top structure, including the anemometer and temperature/humidity sensor. This means that the following parameters are not currently available:

  • air temperature
  • humidity
  • wind speed
  • wind gust
  • wind direction
  • wind chill

Parts are on order and will be replaced once they are received and there is an appropriate weather window for the team to work out on the open water.
