Euro-Argo RISE: New deployments in the Baltic Sea by IOPAN and FMI!
As part of the activities on extension to Marginal Seas in the framework of Euro-Argo RISE (WP6), FMI and IOPAN deployed floats in the Baltic Sea.
FMI deployed an Argo float on June 10th 2020 in the Northern Baltic Proper (NBP) close to the HELCOM monitoring site LL19. The target of the mission is to keep the floats in the NBP, which is very dynamic area (see data here). In addition a national Teledyne Apex float was deployed in the same area.
IOPAN deployed an Argo float on June 3rd 2020 in Gdansk Bay. The target of the mission is to keep the float on the shelf and use it as a virtual mooring (see data here).
These deployments will help to explore the geographical coverage of Argo into shallow coastal waters.
