John Kemp is lead “sled dog” hauling equipment to deploy an ice-tethered
profiler, an instrument that drifts with the pack ice, collecting water
temperature and salinity data in the upper 2,600 feet (800 meters) of the
Arctic Ocean. The profiler collects data four times per day and relays it
via satellite to computers in Woods Hole. The team deploying the instrument
in the Beaufort Gyre in August was part of Andrey Proshutinsky’s expedition
to study the remote waters of this deep Arctic basin. (Photo by Chris Linder.
