Notice, June 2016
Robots mimicking larval swimming behaviors of several marine organisms are being deployed in the ocean near the Bodega Marine Laboratory to determine effects on larval dispersal. If you find one in the water please leave it there. If you find one washed up on the shore please pull it above the water line so that it doesn't get washed away and call the contact number on the device. Thank you!
BOON is a coastal ocean observing system centered at Bodega Marine Laboratory (38º19.110' N 123º04.294' W) and focused on the coasts of northern California. It is a node in larger regional, national and global observing systems. BOON's aim is to work toward the development of innovative science and products that benefit society and the economy through pursuit of a sustainable relationship between humans and the ocean. These products are data-based and derived from the deployment and operation of state-of-the-art ocean observing technology.
