Bearing North

The Swedish icebreaker Oden—and a science party from WHOI—departs Tromso, Norway, for a week of vehicle engineering trials in the Arctic Ocean. In late May and early June, WHOI engineers and technician tested three new vehicles that were designed specifically for working under the Arctic ice cap. One month later, those vehicles are now beginning the first robotic exploration of the deep ocean floor near the North Pole. You can follow that expedition online by clicking here.
