Two meteo-oceanographic buoys are operating in the Ligurian Sea. ODAS-ITALIA 1 is designed for open, deep-sea support for air-sea interaction studies, while the SAMA MAMBO is specifically addressed to coastal environmental monitoring. The different technical solutions adopted for each buoy, according to their specific in the employment, are described. After some years of operation, both systems have been proved able to run for long periods, thus providing reliable long-term time series of marine environmental parameters. Results so far obtained and potentialities of the joint use of the two buoys are discussed. © 2007 - OGS.
