ITP93 was deployed on a 2.0 m thick icefloe in the Transpolar Drift on September 22, 2015 at 85 5.0 N, 139 57.6 E during the PS94 cruise (TransArc II) on the R/V Polarstern as a contribution to Frontiers in Arctic Marine Monitoring (FRAM). On the same icefloe, a SAMS Ice Mass Balance Buoy (IMB), a Metocean Polar Area Weather Station (PAWS), a Metocean Snow Height Ice Beacon and AWI Radiation Station were deployed. The ITP includes a dissolved oxygen sensor and bio-optical sensors 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.
