Myrmidon Reef Deployments of the Facility for the Automated Intelligent Monitoring of Marine Systems - FAIMMS

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Myrmidon Reef in the central Great Barrier Reef off Townsville, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the existing reef communications tower and a single buoy which carries the actual sensors.

Myrmidon Reef is on the edge of the continental shelf and so the station is designed to measure upwelling of water from the slope coming up and onto the continential shelf. The station is linked to stations at Rib Reef (mid-shelf) and Orpheus Island (inshore) to track upwelling water across the shelf.
