ASL Environmental Sciences Assists with Oceanographic Data Collection for Labrador Marine Research and Monitoring

In a collaborative effort with the Nunatsiavut government and Dalhousie University to measure ice, water current and other physical and biological properties of the marine environment, ASL Environmental Sciences Inc. contributed a prototype Log Ice Profiling Sonar (LogIPS). On 15 February, the sonar was deployed on a taut-line mooring in the waters off Nain, Nunatsiavut, Labrador, Canada. The mooring also contained an acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP), as well as data loggers for chlorophyll, turbidity, temperature-salinity and dissolved oxygen. The mooring was deployed through a hole cut in the sea ice, with an open-water recovery planned for later this year. The... (read more)
