Following the successful deployment of the SeaCycler mooring in the Labrador Sea, the team is overjoyed and preliminary data has begun to be collected. Roughly 15 profiles, taken every 20 hours, have been collected, and a website with these data will be available in the coming weeks. 

In addition to the SeaCycler, a number of oxygen-optodes and loggers were deployed to capture the oxygen transport out of the Labrador Sea in the Labrador Slope Water (LSW) water mass. 

The SeaCycler project is a cooperation with DFO, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, GEOMAR and the VITALS program. Thank you to everyone involved, and be sure to follow SeaCycler's year-long deployment!
