Last Location: 9/17/2012, 15:00 UTC at 84° 53.7’ N, 96° 54.5’ W  

Duration: 378 days

Distance Travelled: 2331 km

Number of profiles: 0

Other instruments: none

ITP 50 was deployed on a 3 m thick ice floe in the Transpolar Drift during the ARK-XXVI/3 cruise (TransArc) on the R/V Polarstern as a contribution to the Hybrid Arctic/Antarctic Float Observation System (HAFOS). The ITP included a dissolved oxygen sensor and was programmed to operate on a standard sampling schedule of 2 one-way profiles between 7 and 760 m depth each day. Unfortunately, the underwater profiler did not communicate with the surface unit, so no profile data were obtained.
