2013 Expedition

BGOS & JOIS collaborations to the Beaufort Gyre were again conducted onboard the CCGS Louis St. Laurent on a 5 week expedition beginning in August 2013 with Bill Williams again leading the science party. The 3 BG moorings were recovered, refurbished and redeployed, and 4 ITPs were deployed, along with IMBs, AOFBs, O-buoys, and other automated measuring devices. Hydrographic and geochemical stations throughout the region were again acquired by IOS and collaborators, and the 2 mooring systems deployed last year west of the BGOS array in collaboration with NIPR and TUMSAT in Japan were recovered.
