2014 Deployment

OB-12 helo deployment OB-11 making connections

Two O-Buoys (11 & 12) were deployed this past September in the Beaufort Gyre. OB-12 has our new seawater module, in addition to the atmospheric chemistry and meteorology sensors. The new module will sample seawater pCO2, temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH, chlorophyll fluorescence, and turbidity just below the sea ice. This was Purdue U. graduate student Wes Halfacre second deployment, as he was out in 2012.
