EMSO-Ligure Ouest observatory data (mooring ALBATROSS) from 2019-08 to 2021-08
EMSO-ANTARES (European Multidisciplinary See floor Observatory and water column, ANTARES site) is a second generation permanent submarine observatory deployed offshore of Toulon, France, as a follow up of the pioneering ANTARES neutrino telescope.
This submarine network is part of KM3NeT (https://www.km3net.org/) which has a modular topology designed to connect up to 120 neutrino detection units, i.e. ten times more than ANTARES. The Earth and Sea Science (ESS) instrumentation connected to KM3NeT is based on two complementary components: an Instrumented Interface Module (MII) and an autonomous mooring line (ALBATROSS).
The ALBATROSS mooring line is an inductive line (2000 m) composed of an acoustic release system, two wire ropes hosting CTD-O2 sensors and currentmeters, and two instrumented buoys, . This line is deployed at a distance of 2-3 kilometers from the MII, and the shore communication is done through an acoustic link with the MII which is linked to the KM3NeT node.

ALBATROSS, the Autonomous Line with a Broad Acoustic Transmission for Research in Oceanography and Sea Sciences, is a standalone deep sea mooring dedicated to the long term monitoring of hydrological and biogeochemical properties. The data are transmitted in real time to the shore using the inductive cable along the mooring line and an acoustic link with the MII.
The ALBATROSS line is an inductive line (2000 m) composed of an acoustic communication system, two inductive cables equipped with CTD-O2 sensors, current meters and two instrumented buoys. This line is deployed at a distance of 2-3 kilometers from the MII, and communication on land is made by an acoustic link with the MII, and electro-optical cable via the KM3NeT node.
