Abstract : With the help of my graduate student at Columbia University (Asmi Napitu who is from Indonesia) I have arranged a plan for the development and implementation of an EM APEX program within the Banda Sea of the Indonesian maritime continent, a program in collaboration with Ren-Chieh Lien of the Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington. Two options are available for deployment of two EM APEX floats in the summer of 2016: 1. with Agus Atmadipoera and Indra Jaya of the University of Bogor aboard the Baruna Jaya 7 in July 2016; 2. with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of Republic of Indonesia (KKP), Bali BPPL lab on their Baruna Jaya 8 cruise in August 2016. Arrangement to ship the EM APEX float to Indonesia in the spring 2016 are being arranged.
