The Air-Sea Interaction lab has acquired and developed an extensive suite of instrumentation over time to best sample the upper ocean and lower atmosphere from a variety of different measurement platforms, encompassing multiple scales and measurement techniques. These platforms include fixed wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, large oceanographic vessels, manned floating instrument platforms, and unmanned ocean surface vehicles. Similar instrumentation is also used to perform laboratory experiments at the Hydraulics Laboratory at SIO. Please contact us for additional information on available instrumentation and sensor development capabilities. Follow the links below for more information on specific sensor platforms.
