NOAA Ship Brown aft view

The view on the Ron Brown looking towards aft ship. The large round ring is a bouy that will be deployed during the next mission in the Pacific. These buoys are used to capture ocean data that can be thought of as underwater “weather-like” conditions. The data that is collected has applications such as predictions of future El Nino events.
