2007 Expedition

This year, Sarah Zimmerman again lead the expedition on the icebreaker Louis-St-Laurent. We recovered and re-deployed the four moorings that compose the Beaufort Gyre Observing System. As part of projects associated with the International Polar Year, several instruments were added to the moorings, including sensors to measure the variability in the deepest waters of the Canada Basin and a set of sediment traps. We also deployed three ice-tethedered profilers and a bottom pressure recorder. Click here to read dispatches from the cruise. Click here to read the cruise report.
