Dr. Paul Shepson discusses the “Ozone Buoy,” an instrument deployed in the Arctic to study atmospheric chemistry and the ocean’s carbon dioxide absorption. The buoy collects data on halogen chemistry, pollutants, and the impact of climate change. It operates on solar power and transmits data back to California via satellite. The buoy’s successful performance will inform the deployment of additional buoys across the Arctic Ocean.
