Icy Communications

WHOI engineer Peter Koski from the Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering Department sets up a remote recording station on a small ice floe in the Fram Strait, between Greenland and Spitsbergen, Norway. The goal of the experiment, which was supported by WHOI's Arctic Research Initiative, was to develop the capability for long-range wireless undersea communication and navigation links with unmanned undersea vehicles surveying under sea ice. This phase employed Norwegian Coast Guard Icebreaker KV Svalbard to test communications over ranges up to 100 kilometers. (Photo by Lora Van Uffelen)
