Profilers in Joint Ocean Ice Expedition

During the dropping temperatures of the Arctic autumn, the Beaufort Gyre Observing System (BGOS) & Joint Ocean Ice Study (JOIS) science teams cruise aboard the Canadian ice breaker CCGS Louis St. Laurent, to recover and deploy buoys. McLane Moored Profilers (MMPs) and Ice Tethered Profilers (ITPs) are among the instrumentation on this annual mission. BGOS moorings
Deployment season is ongoing, and preparing in advance for spares (with adequate lead time) ensures success in the field. Consider these items ahead of time: Plan whether additional sample bottles or bags are needed if deploying a water sampler. A full set of bags or bottles is included with a new sampler. However, if your

Product Profile: Sediment Traps

McLane sediment traps provide exceptional performance for biogeochemical studies including radionucleide, paleoproxy, and carbon cycle analysis. They are also beneficial for environmental and pollution monitoring.  Sediment Traps collect vertically settling particles into individual sample bottles which are sealed when not in collection mode. McLane have several options to fit your project needs: Sediment traps in two sizes: Mark

Lasers! Killer algae! Robots!

The prospect of interacting with a “laser robot that finds killer algae” was a draw with local kids at the Woods Hole Science And Technology Education Partnership’s (WHSTEP) Family Science Night, Thinking Big by Looking Small at the Marine Biological Laboratories.  McLane used the Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) to image phytoplankton from local water collected in Eel Pond.  The
