Seafloor Pressure Sensor V14

Live Pressure Data from the Seafloor

Real-time measurements provided by seafloor pressure sensors are of great importance because lunar tides, storms, and tsunamis strongly impact pressures at the seafloor and the flow of fluids into and out of the oceanic crust.

In 2014, seafloor pressure sensors are scheduled to be placed at Axial Base (MJ03A), Slope Base, (MJ01A), and the Southern Hydrate Ridge Summit (LJ01B).
