Maintenance of the 53N Array

By Anne-Sophie Fortin

Overview of the OSNAP Array. We are currently doing the maintenance of the 53oN Array near the Labrador Shelf.

Lately, our work is mostly about the maintenance of the moored instruments of the 53oN array that are near the Labrador Shelf. The maintenance of the 53oN array consists of recovering and cleaning the moorings, refurbishing or replacing the instruments and calibrate them, and finally, deploying the mooring at the same location. This takes a lot of time and effort, but it is not so much of a burden as everyone is motivated to help with this important task.
