We have about nine floats going out on this cruise to the North and Equatorial Pacific!
Three GO-BGC floats are being deployed in the South Pacific in November, 2021.
One GO-BGC float, along with SOCCOM floats, will be deployed in the North Atlantic on this cruise.
The first GO-BGC deployments are being carried out in the western North Atlantic through a partnership with the International Global Ocean Ship-Based Hydrographic Investigation Program (GO-SHIP). In total, twelve biogeochemical floats will be deployed along the A20 and A22 GO-SHIP lines by researchers and crew of the R/V Thomas G. Thompson.
