Crawler Videos

The Baltic Observatory for Oceanographic Monitoring (BOOM) represents one of the first networks with near real-time data transfer to the World Wide Web. The program was launched in 2005 and became operational in 2006. The overall goal is to bring continuous, oceanographic data to an investigator’s desk, enabling environmental monitoring at a new scale.

The BOOM design is able to host stationary sensors as well as moving vehicles with scientific packages. This requires high-power, high-bandwidth and flexibility for integration of the different applications and devices.

Three different crawlers with various scientific applications are available: the O2-crawler, the seep-finder-crawler and the benthic-boundary layer BBL-crawler.
