Engineers and scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO), National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and the University of Washington (UW) have spent time building technologies to enable science on ocean observatories. From our experience building observing technologies we have learned many valuable lessons about supporting long-term observations consisting of large numbers of heterogeneous instruments. This collaboration is now applying those technologies and lessons learned to the next generation of cyberinfrastructure. We will discuss the various cyberinfrastructure technologies, how we applied them to deployed instrumentation and how we are using that existing infrastructure to develop and test other technologies to meet the scalability issues associated with large scale ocean observatories.
