Fogbows usually appear in the Arctic Ocean whenever overcast skies
clear, as water droplets in the fog reflect and refract the beams of
sunlight. The bow of the Swedish icebreakerOden appears to be headed right underneath this one. Researchers from WHOI
and six other institutions have been exploring the Arctic seafloor for
the past month a journey that they will describe in a telephone call
today to a museum in Boston.
