BaySys Ice Beacon Data- Churchill River and Mobile Ice Survey (2017) and Hudson Bay Amundsen campaign (2018).

A series of focused field programs took place within Hudson Bay during 2017 to provide a time series of winter and summer observations from the Bay. The first of these field programs was a winter survey of the Churchill River estuary and mobile ice pack offshore from Cape Churchill in Southwestern Hudson Bay. In summer 2018, 10 ice beacons were also deployed to track the movement of the ice pack and gain insight into the double gyre current movement in this area of the bay.
