BOSS is part of the network of North Mediterranean sea observation sites (marine and atmospheric) called MOOSE (Mediterranean Ocean Observing System for the Environment, founded in February 2008), using data from the MOLA station. The MOOSE observation program is part of CNRS/INSU MISTRALS project (Ocean-Atmosphere projects: HYMEX, MERMEX and CHARMEX) and for the development of operational oceanography (MERCATOR, PREVIMER).

The objective of MOOSE is to set up a multi-site and integrated observation network between the three Observatories of Science of the Universe (Banyuls, Marseille and Villefranche) and the French laboratories (CEFREM, LSEET, LOCEAN) in collaboration with IFREMER and MétéoFrance, to observe in the long term the effects of climate change and those induced by human activities in the North-West Mediterranean. The CTD data of the MOLA station are thus integrated into the Coriolis database.
