2015 Expedition

The 2015 cruise to the Beaufort Gyre to conduct BGOS & JOIS collaborations on the CCGS Louis St. Laurent began in mid-September and lasted 4 weeks with Bill Williams leading the science party. The 3 BG moorings were again recovered, refurbished and redeployed, and 2 ITPs were deployed at ice stations, along with IMBs, an AOFB, and O-buoys. IOS and collaborators acquired hydrographic and geochemical stations throughout the region. One of the 2 mooring systems deployed last year west of the BGOS array in collaboration with NIPR and TUMSAT in Japan was recovered on this cruise (the other was recovered by a Korean research vessel).
