The team on the IBRV Araon has deployed their eighth float, this one in the Ross Sea!

This float was adopted by Queen Elizabeth Secondary in Surrey, BC, Canada, locally known as simply “QE.” Check it out on the expedition blog:

During the last leg of the IBRV Araon expedition, our research path took us right along the 180° line of longitude: the seam between the eastern and western hemispheres and the International Date Line.

Float deployed 🙌🌊

This float was adopted by Homeroom 4 at Our Lady of the Lake Parish School in Seattle, WA. This gallant knight will now be traveling in the Ross Sea, taking measurements of the water column for all to see: https://www.go-bgc.org/expedition/southern-ocean-2023/sir-float-a-lot @GO_BGC
