IPAB plans for IPY

2006: 4 Buoys


The Australian Antarctic CRC (Petra Heil) will deploy one stress-gauge buoy in the Lazarev Sea in July 2006. This will be complemented by three AWI met buoys.


2007: 24-26 Buoys


In 2007, the Australian Antarctic CRC (Petra Heil) will deploy two (meso-scale) deformation arrays off East Antarctica, consisting of four or five buoys each. To be deployed during the Australian IPY sea-ice cruise (mid Aug - mid Oct 2007).

AWI will deploy three met buoys in the Bellingshausen/Amundsen Seas. These might be combined with the main IPAB activity in 2007 so far, which is an ice camp organised by Steve Ackley (SIMBA project), and which also comprises a buoy deformation array. This will be made of 13 buoys!

The Australian BOM (Graeme Ball) will also deploy SVPs on our region of interest.
