Icebreaker expedition 2016
In 2016, there will be simultaneous ship-based operations from the CCGS Amundsen. Measurements will be made at stations located along a quasi‐zonal transect at the latitude of the ice camp.
The research icebreaker will visit stations along the transect several times over the 6 week operational period (June 3 to July 15), traveling between the eastern limit of the ice-edge bloom, and the western limit of the under‐ice phytoplankton bloom (or within 50 km westward from the ice edge if there is no under‐ice bloom).
