Abstract:
OBSEA (https://obsea.es/about/overview.php) is an underwater cabled observatory deployed in 2009. This seafloor observatory is located 4 km off the Vilanova i la Geltru coast in a fishing protected area. It is connected to the coast by an energy and communications mixed cable. The main advantages of having a cabled
observatory are that it provides an uninterrupted power supply to the scientific instruments and offers a high bandwidth communication link.
This way, real time data is available and problems
encountered in battery powered systems are avoided. With OBSEA, it is possible to perform a real time observation of multiple parameters in the marine medium.

OBSEA is a node of the EMSO ERIC.

The Customer is a consortium represented by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
