Deployed on an ice floe at the North Pole in Summer 2009 as part of the North Pole Environmental Observatory.
In 2009, the onset of summer sea ice melt was later than most prior years observed by the web cams (later only in 2002). Meltpond coverage was less widespread than any year observed by the web cams other than 2002, but the snow remained soft later than most prior years (at least through Sept 8). See http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/detect/ice... for details. Latest web cam photos are at http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/arctic-zone/...
