The Poulsbo Marine Science Center is a non-profit educational facility located on Liberty Bay on the west side of Puget Sound. The Center contracted with Electronic Data Solutions to provide, integrate, and install a weather station and a water quality monitoring station in a buoy in the bay. The weather station sensors are hard-wired to a Campbell Scientific CR10 datalogger which, in turn, is connected to PC with a large color monitor. The PC is running a special Campbell Scientific, Inc. software and displays the data in both graphical and tabular form.

The buoy is powered by a solar panel and has a Campbell Scientific CR205 datalogger/transmitter. Data are collected by the CR205 and transmitted over a spread-spectrum link back to the Center where they are displayed in a similar manner on a second large color monitor. The buoy has been installed and tested and then removed pending the receipt of a Coast Guard permit. At that point it will be re-deployed.
