  3. 3. TEMPERATURE <ul><li>CTD - conductivity, temperature, depth : </li></ul><ul><li>measures temperature as well as electrical conductivity (salinity) </li></ul>
  4. 4. weather vane - measures wind direction anemometer – measures wind speed WIND
  5. 5. CURRENT SPEED <ul><li>current meter </li></ul>
  6. 6. TIDE HEIGHT <ul><li>tide gauge - </li></ul><ul><li>measures </li></ul><ul><li>height of tide </li></ul>
  7. 7. TIDE HEIGHT
  8. 8. MOORED BUOYS fixed in one location
  9. 9. MOORED BUOYS <ul><li>have instruments on them to </li></ul><ul><li>measure: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>air and water temperature </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>current speed & direction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>salinity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>wind speed & direction </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 10. buoy system in Pacific Ocean to measure for El Nino
