The Prawler mooring was developed by the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory located in Seattle, Washington. What makes this type of mooring innovative is its use of a Prawler device: a profiling “crawler” which essentially works its way up and down the mooring line by using wave action as its power source and collects a variety of measurements. In this video, Dr. Bingham also explains that sometimes, science experiments experience hiccups, using one particular mooring as an example. This video is part of a larger presentation entitled “Follow That Salt! SPURS Results and the Future of Salinity Exploration” (cosee.umaine.edu/coseeos/spurs/webinars_03.htm).
