Station 44004 went adrift on 03/08/2008 and the last report from its moored position was at 2000Z. The buoy was recovered on 05/18/09. When redeployed the station will be moved approximately 120 nm northwest of its former position, to the outer continental shelf near the Hudson Canyon. This is to fill the data gap that presently exists along the outer shelf in that area. This station has since been disestablished and replaced by buoy 44066.
