Lights, Ice, Action

Ice lights illuminate the sea surface ahead of the R/V Neil Armstrong last summer off the coast of Greenland. The cruise, led by WHOI physical oceanographer, Bob Pickart was part of the Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP) initiative to provide a continuous record of the movement of heat, mass, and freshwater from the Labrador Sea to Scotland. An important part of Neil Armstrong's mission is to carry scientists into remote and often hostile regions of the North Atlantic like this that play a critical role in regulating Earth's climate.
