On November 1, Zoe, our on board scientist, releases the 6th of 7 Surface Velocity Program Buoys (SVP). See this video.
We were sailing between the South Sandwich Islands and South Georgia where we hope to resume our crossing of the island which was interrupted due to bad weather on Oct 23. These buoys measure surface temperature and salinity of sea water for approximately two years. Long term, they most likely follow the ACC (Antarctic Circumpolar Current). To follow the buoys over time, go to this link.
