EVENT: Live from the Arctic - Understanding the dynamic ocean aboard the USCGC Healy

Coast Guard Cutter Healy conducts science missions in Beaufort Sea

Live from the Arctic - Understanding the dynamic ocean aboard the USCGC Healy

June 28, 2024

On July 16 at 2 p.m. EST, join NSF-funded researchers aboard the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Healy!

Researchers are exploring how water from the Pacific Ocean circulates through the Arctic and impacts the ecosystem under the warming climate. The cruise will take these intrepid scientists from the Bering Strait through the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, then eastward to the first entrance of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

Learn about the suite of measurements being taken beneath the pack ice and in the sediments, and take a tour of this unique, powerful icebreaker. Members of the research team and crew will answer your questions about the science and life aboard the ship.
