Present status and results of the Marine Optical Buoy (MOBY) Refresh and MarONet

The Hawaii Marine Optical Buoy (MOBY) has provided the primary vicarious calibration data for many ocean color satellite systems over the last 20 years. We have been working on replacing the MOBY system, with a goal of improving the operation of the system, in a NOAA supported process we are calling MOBY-Refresh. In addition, with the support of NASA we have developed MarONet, which takes many of the features of the NOAA MOBY-Refresh effort and adds additional components to allow deployment of the MarONet system off of Perth, Australia. We have recently deployed the first of the new systems at a location near the heritage Hawaii MOBY site. We are finding that the new system agrees with the heritage MOBY system to within +-2% for simultaneous measurements of the spectral remote sensing reflectance. We are collecting data with the new system throughout calendar year 2022, in this location near the heritage Hawaii site. The goal is to validate the new system performance with this cross over experiment before switching the heritage Hawaii MOBY to the MOBY-Refresh instrument in 2023, and installing the MarONet system in Australia in mid-2023.
