08 November 2022
Meet the two SOCCOM scientists, Josie Adams (U. Washington undergraduate and Argo lab employee) and Ben Freiberger (Scripps Institution of Oceanography technician), who are on the NBP22-11 transit cruise. They will lead the float deployments, and take the water samples that will be shipped back to the US for analysis in labs at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and NASA.
