Overview

Overview

  • Goals

  • Past 2007 deployments

  • Expected deployments in 2008.

  • IPY partnership

IABP Annual Meeting, Toulouse


Goals

Goals

  • Obtain real-time drift information to supplement radar (or visual) imagery used to created daily ice charts.

  • Monitor regional and local ice motion

  • Provides history of ice motion;

    • helps supplement various imagery sources used for daily and weekly ice charts.

  • Provides MSLP information for CMC / Ed.

  • Partner with other science work.

  • Verify drift model (Sea ice and Iceberg).

2007 deployments

2007 deployments

  • 1 Calib for CHC (north of Resolute).

  • 2 Calibs in Nares Strait

    • 1 died after ~ 2 months

    • 1 still moving!

  • 1 Calib on the ice island (Ayles shelf)

    • Died during summer months (water puddle)

    • Split into 2 pieces in Sverdrup channel.

2008 deployments

2008 deployments

  • 1 Calib on the 2nd piece of the Ayles island

    • Not expected to move until early August.

    • Might loose 1st piece again through summer months.

    • Should even consider identical problem with 2nd piece.

  • 2 Calibs for CHC tracking old ice with embedded temperature chain (1 failed).

  • 3 Calibs for Amundsen (IPY)…to be deployed in M’Clure Strait; CGDT did go up to M’Clure but deployed non-CIS buoys.

  • 4-6 Calibs for validating new ice drift model in Lancaster Sound… won’t happen due to NRI permission.

  • CIS provided funding for 2 ICEX buoys for White Trident project.
