WHOI mooring engineer Jim Ryder aims an XBT at a patch of open water in Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord
From the open door of the Greenpeace helicopter, WHOI mooring engineer Jim Ryder aims an XBT, or expendable bathythermograph, at a patch of open water in Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord. As it falls to the bottom, the XBT will send back information on the fjord water’s temperature. (Photo by Nick Cobbing, © Greenpeace International)
