  • 15.06.2021 Today r/v Oceania set sail from the Port of Gdansk on an almost three-month Arctic cruise - AREX2021. The ship is sailing towards the Arctic Mediterranean, where two Polish and four German floats will be deployed. On the way, the third Polish float in the Baltic Sea will be launched.

  • 8-9.04.2021 - As part of the Euro-Argo RISE project, IO PAN & FMI will organise a Baltic and Arctic Argo online workshop.

    The first day will be devoted to the general Argo floats knowledge. During the second day there will be two two-hour sessions covering the subject of Argo in the Baltic Sea and the Arctic.

    We invite participants from the Baltic and Arctic communities, that are interested in using Argo data or engaging with Argo activities to join the workshop.

    More information about the workshop and details for registration can be found under the following link:

  • December 1, 2020 - the Baltic float WMO3902106 launched by IOPAN in 2018 within the Bornholm Basin was recovered by the Estonian vessel R/V Salme north of the island of Hiiumma. We thank Estonian friends for their help in this difficult operation. This is the next, important stage of cooperation in the Baltic Sea. The float has been taking measurements for over two years, since September 11, 2018. During this time, it made 420 profiles, providing valuable CTD/O2 data. Also, examining the condition of the float (batteries, sensors) will certainly be a valuable contribution to the EA RISE program - more information on the project website.

  • At the beginning of July 2020 two Argo floats (WMO 3902111, 3902112) were deployed in the Nordic Seas from the board of r/v Oceania. The instruments are the ARVOR-I floats with Iridium transmission system. One of the floats (WMO 3902112), in addition to standard CTD measurements, will also measure dissolved oxygen in sea water.

  • At the end of May and beginning of June, two Argo floats (WMO 3902110, 3902109) were deployed from the board of r/v Oceania. The first float was launched in the Bornholm Basin. In addition to standard CTD measurements, it will also take measurements of dissolved oxygen. The second float was launched within the EA RISE project in the Gulf of Gdańsk - more information on the project website.

  • On 1 January 2019, the Euro-Argo RISE (Euro-Argo Research Infrastructure Sustainability and Enhancement) project was started. This is the H2020 EU project financed under the grant No. 824131, which will last 4 years. The Euro-Argo RISE project involves 19 partners from all over Europe (including IO PAN) and is coordinated by Euro-Argo ERIC (more information here).

  • We tested our first Baltic Argo float at the end of October 2016. The tests were conducted in the pool of the Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia, in the Department of Underwater Work Technologies. The tests came out successful, so we are ready for launching the float during the November cruise of r/v Oceania.
