As part of this program we will deploy 2 gliders: Pearldiver and Gannet (formerly unit_473) and our Saibuoy (SB Beluga) into the Labrador Sea from theContinue reading “HOTSeALS 2019/2020”

We are excited to show Lucie what we do and figure out better ways to communicate the researchContinue reading “And we are off to Bonne Bay!”
