The DMON buoy was fabricated and deployed by the Mooring Group at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution with critical support from Don Peters, John Kemp, Jeff Pietro, and Jim Dunn. Additional engineering support was provided by Leo-Paul Pelletier, Jim Partan, Tom Hurst, and Keenan Ball. Support for the deployment and operation of the buoy was generously provided by the Benioff Ocean Initiative.
