June 2023

In 2023, the R/V Revelle conducted a basin-wide expedition in the Indian Ocean made up of smaller expeditions including the DMBE (in green on map); Mauritius to India transit (in orange); ASTRAL/EKAMSAT (not displayed on the map); India to Australia transit (in blue); and the IO5 Expedition (in red).  During the ASTRAL/EKAMSAT portion of the Indian Ocean expedition, one float was deployed in the Arabian Sea.  This float experienced the Cyclone Biparjoy shortly after deployment which provided oceanographic insight to this event.

Float status including number of completed profiles to date is available in the Float Status Table.

Associated documentation, shipboard validation data sets (if collected), and float data sets are available on our Shipboard Calibration and Validation Datasets page.

Adopted floats from the Revelle’s Indian Ocean expeditions can be found on the Adopt-a-float data table. Check out all adopted floats on the Adopt-a-float data table, photos of floats can be found on our Flickr page.
