ƒeƒLƒXƒg ƒ{ƒbƒNƒX: Technical Information of the JKEO Mooring


Home/Overview | Technical Info | Data


JKEO1 from February 2007 to March 2008
JKEO1 mooring is based on KEO mooring which was developed at the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) and is essentially a Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) mooring modified for the harsh conditions of the Kuroshio Extension region.

JKEO2 from February to September 2008
JKEO3 from November 2008 to August 2009
JKEO4 from August 2009 to October 2010
JKEO5 from February 2011 to June 2012
JKEO6 from June 2012 to July 2013
These mooring designs adopting K-TRITON buoy for its top buoy are based on m-TRITON mooring design developed at the Marine Technology Center (MARITEC) at JAMSTEC for maintaining the m-TRITON (emf stands for eMinif) buoy designed for making its size and weight smaller than the TRITON buoy used in the Tropical Pacific. K-TRITON buoy (eKf stands for Kuroshio or Strong current [Kyoryu in Japanese] region) is essentially a m-TRITON buoy modified for the harsh sea conditions.
