When you hover your mouse over any green dot, you will see plenty of data. The same amount of data will be transmitted from the ocean. To see a short explanation, hover your mouse over any data displayed on the right.

This aluminum support makes the boat easy to transport from my warehouse into the van and then directly into the water.
