One GO-BGC float was deployed off of the R/V Thompson as part of the Student Thesis Expedition leaving from Honolulu Hawai’i and heading towards Fiji.  The deployed GO-BGC float is pictured above in orange, as well as other floats in the area (in red and yellow) along with float tracks.

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.

The float deployed from the Thompson as part of the Student Thesis Expedition was adopted by a school in California. Check out all adopted floats on the Adopt-a-float data table, photos of floats can be found on our Flickr page.
