Argos DCS System Use Agreement of the Month
– January 2015
Norwegian Polar Institute – Tromso
Norwegian Young Sea Ice Cruise (N-ICE 2015)
N-ICE 2015 is a multidisciplinary research experiment in the Arctic Ocean lead by the Norwegian Polar Institute in collaboration with many international partners.
The Research Vessel LANCE will be frozen in the sea ice North of Svalbard from mid-January to the end of June 2015.
A wide range of sea ice, oceanographic, atmospheric & biological measurements will be conducted to increase our understanding of the coupled Arctic climate system.
A special emphasize lies on the now thinner & more movable ice cover compared to the sea ice a few decades ago.
In conjunction with the ice station at LANCE, an array of sea ice & ocean buoys will be deployed. Argos will be used for Metocean ICEB-CAN buoys as part of this array.
