May and June 2022


Though a partnership with the International Global Ocean Ship-Based Hydrographic Investigation Program (GO-SHIP), fourteen GO-BGC floats were deployed in the North Pacific during the P02 expedition along the 30 degrees North transect line.  During the two legs of the P02 Expedition from Guam to San Diego (with a stop-over in Hawaii), floats were deployed from the R/V Roger Revelle under the guidance of Chief Scientists Alison Macdonald and Andreas Thurnherr.

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.

Ten of the fourteen GO-BGC floats deployed from the Revelle were adopted by schools in Arizona, California, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, and Ohio. Check out all adopted floats on the Adopt-a-Float table, photos of floats can be found on our Flickr page.

As part of the expedition, on-board crew and researchers contributed to a GO-BGC Expedition Log describing life at sea aboard an oceanographic expedition.
