I have just returned from a couple of days helping with mobilization of the equipment onto the Amundsen, which is docked at the Coast Guard base just below the Chateau Frontenac. The Amundsen is operated by ArcticNet which, with the help of Keith Levesque, greatly facilitated lifting all our equipment into place. NETCARE has atmospheric sampling instruments in five locations around the ship (from UofT, UBC, UCalgary, Environment Canada).
The white container, on the foredeck, with many of our shipping crates in front, is from where our group will be sampling. Another photo shows John Liggio from Environment Canada whose group will be sampling from the new MetOcean container located just behind the bridge.
