TOP7 was deployed in open water in the Beaufort Sea on October 1, 2022 at 76 59.4 N, 149 16.1 W as part of the Beaufort Gyre Observing System (BGOS) during the JOIS 2022 cruise on the CCGS Louis S. St. Laurent. The TOP is operating on a standard sampling schedule of 6 two-way profiles from the surface to 200 m depth each day.
