No fooling around here as the fifth GO-BGC float is launched
At 1215 UTC (coordinated Universal Time) on April 2nd, 2021, the fifth float of the newly NSF funded GO-BGC Array program was launched over the side after CTD Station #45. Huge thanks to the support of the US-GOSHIP program and the researchers onboard the A20 Expedition.
Admiral was named by the Bayside Academy in Daphne, AL. The reasoning for the name:
“We decided to name the float after our school – the Bayside Admirals!“
Elizabeth Ricci was the shipboard technician in charge of this launch and Elena Perez did the amazing art!
