PIRATA (Prediction and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic) is a project designed by a group of scientists involved in CLIVAR, and is implemented by the group through multi-national cooperation. The purpose of PIRATA is to study ocean-atmosphere interactions in the tropical Atlantic that are relevant to regional climate variability on seasonal, interannual and longer time scales. The array consists of moored buoys that measure surface meteorological data, sea surface temperatures, salinity, and ocean currents that are relevant for studying climate change, global warming, El Nino and La Nina related conditions, hurricanes, tropical storms, and more.
