2019 Expedition

In September 2019, the annual BGOS & JOIS cruise to the Beaufort Gyre was again performed from the CCGS Louis St. Laurent with Sarah Zimmermann again as Chief Scientist in the field (with shore support provided by Bill Williams and Andrey Proshutinsky). Unlike the previous expeditions, the 3 BG moorings were not be recovered this year, as they were deployed for a 2-year duration in 2018. However, due to the importance of not missing the summer freshwater signal for this year, IOS and collaborators again obtained hydrographic and geochemical stations across the region. Buoy deployments consisted of 4 ITPs (2 with SAMIs), a prototype Tethered Ocean Profiler (TOP) buoy, and 1 seasonal IMB. One ITP was also recovered. Click here to read dispatches from the cruise.
