R/V Armstrong tracks Arctic freshwater along the southeast Greenland shelf

Assistant scientist Nick Foukal and Research Assistant Jessica Kozik have been deploying surface drifters and profiling floats along the southeast Greenland shelf during the OOI Irminger cruise aboard the R/V Armstrong. The goal of the project is to track meltwater from Greenland and the Arctic as it rounds Cape Farewell at the southern tip of Greenland. The other goal is to avoid icebergs!
