Successful deployment of BGC-Argo float adopted by North Colonie Central Schools in Latham, NY
10 May 2022
Day 10 at sea, we waved good-bye to the Kuroshio Current and marched towards the Izu-Ogasawara ridge, after crossing which we will leave the Philippine basin and enter the North Pacific basin (Image 1). After a Bio GO-SHIP and regular GO-SHIP combined cast, Mariana Aguirre Nunes, a master’s student from Florida State University, successfully deployed Anchored in STEAM@nccs for North Colonie Central Schools in Latham, NY (Image 2). As of May 10th, Anchored in STEAM@nccs has reported healthy among her sisters and sent out her first profile (Image 3)!
