ITP 19 was deployed on a 1.9 m thick icefloe in the Transpolar Drift on April 7, 2008 at 88° 27.1 N, 16° 57.7 E as part of the North Pole Environmental Observatory (NPEO) . On the same icefloe, a Naval Postgraduate School Arctic Ocean Flux Buoy (AOFB), a US Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) Ice Mass Balance Buoy and NOAA/PMEL Weatherex station were deployed. The ITP is operating on a fast sampling schedule of 4 one-way profiles between 7 and 760 m depth each day.
