NPS Oceanography Department staff members (from left) oceanographer Jim Stockel, Rob Wyland, a general engineer, and Prof. Timothy Stanton, an associate research professor discuss and work on an autonomous ocean flux probe that directly measures temperature and heat flux transfer occurring under polar ice. This probe is part of the larger autonomous ocean flux buoy, which uses sensors to take heat flux measurements 12 times a day and then sends that information back via satellite from itís location to NPS scientists for analysis.
