Buoy Tracks

JWACS 2006 Beaufort Sea Buoy Array

Buoy Tracks

Tracks of 6 buoys deployed in the Beaufort Sea in September 2006. These buoys where deployed as a tight cluster to investigate small scale sea ice deformation. The orange part of each track shows where the buoy was over the last 2 days. Buoy 64880 died on August 13th 2007, and buoy 64878 has not sent consistent data since mid-winter 2006/2007, so we show area and divergence for the buoy array based on the remaining 4 buoys.
