Four GO-BGC floats were deployed in the North Pacific from the R/V Sikuliaq during research expeditions led by Chief Scientists Russell Hopcroft, Mark Wells, and Spahr Webb.

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.

All four of the deployed GO-BGC floats were adopted by schools in Arizona, California, Massachusetts, and Washington. Check out all adopted floats on the Adopt-a-Float table, photos of floats can be found on our Flickr page.
