And it’s a go!

It’s early this morning that the CCGS Amundsen left Quebec City for its 16th scientific expedition. The multidisciplinary expedition will run until October 24 and will allow a reduced contingent of scientists from national research teams to study the marine and coastal environments of the Canadian and Greenlandic waters.

Next step: a second mobilization in Dartmouth where will embark researchers from the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (BIO) and their scientific equipment.
