Winter 2010
GMRI’s recent merger with the Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS) has created an exciting new area of growth, adding capacity to manage, synthesize, and share ocean data. The network of buoys developed for GoMOOS by the University of Maine will continue to be operated by UMaine, a longtime partner of GMRI.
President Don Perkins commented, "The incorporation of the excellent GoMOOS staff into GMRI represents a landmark opportunity to combine ecosystem science with information technology and data sharing to address seemingly intractable challenges.”
