Ice-T is a buoy used at the Ice Camp to measure the thickness of sea ice. Anchored in the pack ice, this device provides information on atmospheric pressure, air temperature, ice drift, horizontal current, temperature, salinity at the base of the ice in addition to thermal profiles of the ice and snow. These data are as accurate (or sometimes more) than those provided by the satellite-derived maps and are drawn up in real time.

After 10 days of hard work the camp was completely set up and the Green Edge team could finally focus on science related activities.
