Lining Up for Takeoff

Airport crews and research technicians lined up their science gear on the tarmac of the Resolute Bay (Canada) airport for shipment to the Canadian Forces Station Alert and, ultimately, the ice-covered North Pole. In April 2007, WHOI researchers participated for the first time in the North Pole Environmental Observatory, deploying an Ice-Tethered Profiler through the ice in order to measure the properties and changes in the upper layers of the Arctic Ocean.
