Funding for the mooring was provided by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Project Office of NASA. Development of the ARGs for deployment on ocean moorings was sponsored by the Pan American Climate System program in the Office of Global Programs of NOAA. Additional funding is from the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research Ocean Acoustics. We thank Dr. David Tang of National Taiwan University for facilitating the construction, deployment, and recovery of the ATLAS mooring from the R/V Ocean Researcher.
