    Since the beginning of 2004 MUMM has performed a series of moorings in the Belgian Coastal Zone with a tripod or benthic lander, equipped with a series of oceanographic sensors. Current meters such as an Acous1c Doppler Profiler (ADP) and an Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV), a CT-­sensor capable of measuring temperature and salinity, op1cal (OBS) and acous1c backsca\er sensors (ADP and ADV) to measure suspended sediment concentra1on, a LISST 100 suspended par1cle sizer, a passive Cetacean monitoring device (C-­PoD) and a passive sampling device for chemical monitoring have ever since been moored for more than 1750 days. From autumn 2009 a permanent coastal observatory has been installed at MOW1, located to the west of the entrance to the Zeebrugge harbor. Other mooring sites include more offshore loca1ons, such as the Kwintebank, Gootebank, MOW0 and the offshore windmill farms and a very nearshore loca1on (Blankenberge).
