ITP72 was deployed on a 1.25 m thick ice floe in the Transpolar Drift on August 30, 2013 at 80 49.505 N, 132 37.966 W in collaboration with the Nansen and Amundsen Basins Observational System (NABOS) project from the Russian Research Vessel Federov. The ITP includes a dissolved oxygen sensor and full biosuite system and is operating on a pattern profiling sampling schedule including one full one-way profile between 7 and 760 m depth every 1.5 days and a fixed SAMI PCO2 and SAMI pH at 6 m depth. More information on the biosuite sensor package and data handling can be found here .
