Description 
Summary

IMBK Marine Observation System (IMBK MOS) is collection of permanent stations sampling physical and chemical parameters of sea water. Two permanent stations have been established at Montenegrin coast. First one situated in Kotor bay (near the Institute) sampling temperature and mooring depth on hourly bases and store data in internal memory. Every few months probe is checked and data are downloaded to database. Second station is situated at Port of Bar, sampling temperature, salinity, mooring depth and pH on hourly basis. Data are remotely uploaded to database and shown at SEA ODC portal. This station is still in testing phase so some data still not reached acceptable level of quality.
