2014 Expedition

Once again, ship scheduling caused our cruise to the Beaufort Gyre to conduct BGOS & JOIS collaborations on the CCGS Louis St. Laurent to be delayed until the end of summer.   Our expedition began in mid-September, and lasted 4 weeks with Bill Williams again head of the science party. The 3 BG moorings were again successfully recovered, refurbished and redeployed, and 3 ITPs were deployed, along with IMBs, and O-buoys.  IOS and collaborators again acquired hydrographic and geochemical stations throughout the region, although due to the reduced cruise duration less stations were able to be occupied than previous years.  The 2 mooring systems recovered last year west of the BGOS array in collaboration with NIPR and TUMSAT in Japan were refurbished over the past year and redeployed.
