Longterm OBS for Tsunami and Earthquake Research

The titanium frame LOBSTER is a Broadband-OBS-System. It is the instrument carrier for the broadband seismometer, recorder, releaser and the batteries each in a titanium pressure tube as well as for the float units made of syntactic foam, Anchor and floatation are asymmetrically designed: the OBS ascends to the water surface in upright position whereas it descends to the seafloor and stays there for data recording in horizontal position.
