We aim to deploy a Polar Area Weather Station (PAWS) on the ice during the cruise. The METOCEAN Polar Area Weather Station (PAWS) is a compact platforms which measures location (through GPS), air temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, sea surface temperature, and wind speed and direction as it drifts with the pack ice. The PAWS has been designed to transmit weather related data on a 3-hour interval over the Iridium satellite network for a period of 1 year. (Photo courtesy METOCEAN)
