top float of a BGOS mooring
Due to the ice conditions, Will Ostrom brings the recovered top float of a BGOS (Beaufort Gyre Observing System) mooring onboard upside down, with the “upward looking sonar” that measures ice thickness, now pointed down! Four BGOS moorings were recovered for the 5th straight year and three were redeployed to obtain another year of oceanic data beneath the Arctic ice pack. (Photo by Gerty Ward)
