Nearly 50 full-station sampling days at the 2015 ice camp, between mid-March and mid-July, made possible the sampling of 20 different categories of measurements, completing a first field season. Findings about initiation and onset of the phytoplankton spring bloom are still undergoing from sample analyses in different laboratories. The expedition was a great success both in terms of science and in terms of integrating into the Inuit community of Qikiqtarjuaq (Nunavut, Canada).
Before the 2016 ice camp
Training has already begun! On Monday, February 8, we started the preparatory courses for the 2016 ice camp. According to the objectives of the campaign plan, the scientific team must receive training in the skills needed to ensure the security of the ice camp campaign.
