ice-ocean environmental buoy

Ready for the Ice

Ken Fairhurst prepares to load an ice-ocean environmental buoy (IOEB) onto a ship in 1990 for a cruise to the Antarctic. IOEBs were designed to deploy instruments attached to a cable hanging from a float (the yellow and blue structure shown here) embedded in the sea ice. IOEBs are one of several instruments developed at WHOI to facilitate study of ocean processes in polar regions. This particular buoy was made in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey and was deployed in the Weddell Sea. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
