Abstract
    A system for marine biogeochemical monitoring using sea water pumped up continuously for the engine cooling system was developed based on a critical review of the existing ocean observation platforms. The parameters selected were water temperature, salinity, pH, fluorescence, dissolved nutrients, chlorophyll-a, and pheopigments. The prototype system was deployed on a ferry boat thet used to sail regularly between Kobe, Japan and Pusan, Korea. The system and 1991 results are discribed in a previous report and the 1992-93 results will be available in the next report with the remarks on the points to be improved. This CD-ROM contains the numerical data and image files. This ferry line was stopped in February, 1993 and we shifted the monitoring program to two other lines. The feasibility of ferry monitoring has been demonstrated in that ferrys can obtain the temporally and spatially detailed records directly measured, which neither satellite nor the other platforms can access. Furthermore, any sensing technology is applicable to the ferry platform along with the regular monitoring missions.
