Big Buoys

At the University of Miami RSMAS campus in Key Biscayne, high quality and very advanced oceanic research go on non stop. Out in the sun, you can see some equipment used for these research. These are large buoys (about 4 - 5 feet in diameter) used to deploy measurement instrument in the open oceans. As they are quite expensive, you can see the instructions in case they are found on a beach somewhere. Yes, we do lose equipment, and they are quite expensive.
