Abstract

LEO-15 is an a long-term ecosystem observatory located in 15m water depths off the coast of New Jersey, USA. It consists of two instrumented seafloor platforms connected by electro-optical cable to a land-based field station. Real-time access to data via the internet is also a feature. This article describes the system hardware and its operation in detail. Continuous bottom imagery is provided by two video channels. Instruments include temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, wave height, tidal range, current, nutrient level, sand migration and water clarity sensors. Free swimming autonomous vehicles can also be deployed from LEO-15 to perform survey missions and return, dock and download data. The range of potential applications and studies is large. Current efforts are focused on coastal upwelling, storm-driven sediment transport and coastal ocean and estuary interaction.
