    From OAAS:
    Dear Homer area boaters,

    We are happy to let you know the Lower Cook Inlet wave buoy is once again up and running. On Monday, the ADFG research vessel Pandalus deployed the buoy during a research cruise under the GulfWatch Alaska program, funded by the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council.

    The buoy is currently streaming information on wave height, direction, and wave period, as well as water temperature. The buoy is in a similar location as in 2013 (59 35.839 N, 151 49.748 W).

    AOOS would like to express gratitude to Angie Doroff (Kachemak Bay Research Reserve) and Kris Holderied (NOAA Kasitsna Bay Lab) who are pictured at right and orchestrated the deployment. We would also like to thank crew of the Pandalus - Captain Ted Jewell and Dave Knight. This team volunteered significant time and energy to ensure this resource is available to the community. If you see them in town, please tell them thanks.
