Mooring N0120 : Northeast Channel


Latitude: 42° 19.55´N
Longitude: 65° 54.88´W
Location Description: South of Browns Bank
Deployed: Jul 24 2016
Coast Guard Light List Letter: -
Coast Guard Light List Number
Water Depth: 225 meters (738 feet)
Watch Circle Radius: 80 meters (262 feet)
Last Cell Phone Transmission: Mar 29, 11 AM EDT
Last GOES Transmission: Mar 29, 08 PM EDT
Latest Event:

Problems connecting to the buoy using iridium have continued for several periods this winter (may be related to cold temps?). Normal communications have typically been restored after 1-5 days.

Latest Conditions:

Click on the graph icons below to see time series plots of the listed variables. The latest conditions are in local time but all plots are in GMT(Summer EDT is 4 hours behind GMT; Winter EST is 5 hours behind GMT; Atlantic AST is always 4 hours behind GMT).

We follow the convention that depth is measure positive "down". That's why parameters like wind speed have negative depths attached to them! The latest eastward and northward subsurface currents are displayed at a subset of available depths; no plots are presently available for current velocity vectors below 2m.
