Overview . Deployment Plans

Deployment Plans 2017

The map on the right show the deployment plans for the IABP for
Spring and Summer 2017. The grey lines show average residence times
of sea ice (i.e. years till the ice will drift through Fram Strait),
the green dots show the current buoy positions, while the yellow line shows how
these buoys will drift in the mean, and the small red dots are where
the current buoys may be on Sept 1st.
