Temperature Staff Beacon
An ice staff beacon collected temperature profiles from the surface water, ice, and atmosphere. Modifications of the unit resulted in a single-unit to monitor water, ice, and air temperatures. Its battery pack is deployed below the ice surface along with the thermisters to increase battery life.
