GPS Ice motion beacon data in the South Beaufort Sea

GPS equipment disposal ice motion beacons constructed/developed by Oceantics were deployed on different types of sea ice by either small boat or helicopter. Hourly location data was transmitted using Iridium data burst modems from NAL. The email data (attachments) were received at the University of Manitoba. Ice motion beacons were left on the ice, and assumed to have sunk when data transmission ceased.
