It contains a PM36S MarArgos automatic tide gauge station which activates, every 20 mn, measurements of:
- atmospheric pressure with a Vaisala sensor;
- bottom pressure, sea water temperature and conductivity with an Aanderaa WLR7 sensor.
Measurements are real time transmitted, via Argos system, to LEGOS.
