L4 data buoy relaunched

The L4 data buoy has been relaunched today following its winter maintenance. Thanks especially to James and Paul for getting the buoy ready and the boat crew for launching it. Main modifications this winter were to prevent the build up of organic growth on the instruments and cages. Only time will tell if we are successful. There is also a new Satlantic Suna nitrate sensor onboard. The stability of this instrument seems to be better than the ISUS – the instrument is mounted horizontally.
