ITP 30 was deployed on a 2.4 m thick ice floe in the Beaufort Sea as part of the Beaufort Gyre Observing System (BGOS) during the JOIS 2008 cruise on the CCGS Louis S. St. Laurent. On the same icefloe, a Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) Ice Mass Balance Array (SIMBA A) was also installed. The ITP was configured with a FSI EMCTD and operated on a standard sampling schedule of 2 one-way profiles between 7 and 760 m depth each day.
