Over the past seven years, AOOS has maintained a buoy off the coast of Anchor Point in Lower Cook inlet that provides real-time wave information to boaters.  We want to let you know the buoy is currently down due to a dead battery and will be pulled from the water for maintenance and battery replacement.  We expect that this process may take a few weeks.

We realize many people rely on the data for decision making and safe marine operations, and hope to have it up and running as soon as possible during the busy summer season.

Thank you for your continued support of this buoy and AOOS.
