some PMEL produced sensors with those commercially avail- able. Telemetry is via the Iridium network which allows the transmission of higher resolution data streams.With NOAA?s Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) program combining efforts in the Paci c with the Japan Agency of Ma- rine-Earth Science and Technology to form the TAO/TRITON array, RAMA in the Indian Ocean and the ?Prediction and Research Moored Array? (PIRATA) research in the Atlantic Ocean, the ?Global Tropical Moored Buoy Array? (GTMBA, Fig. 2) was created, all large ocean basin monitoring systems.

This research will also bene t many outside the Indian Ocean region due to the atmospheric connections that in uence surrounding nations.
