ROSETTA-Ice launched five more ALAMO ocean profilers from an Air National Guard C-130 Hercules yesterday. First clear day for weeks, and the last available day to fly. Graphic shows the deployment locations.
These profilers should report back daily while sea ice is clear. In winter, they will be covered by sea ice but will continue to profile, then send us back their data next summer when the ice clears away again.
Congratulations to the entire ROSETTA-Ice team, but in particular Kirsty Tinto and Dave Porter (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory) and Scott Springer (ESR).
