Moorings on Lance

Northern Moorings

In September 2013, WHOI scientist Bob Pickart and colleagues traveled to to the Arctic aboard the Norwegian ship Lance to study ocean circulation in the far north. The group retrieved deep-water moorings that had been left in place for one year measuring ocean properties and flow. The scientists are studying how much water from the relatively warm Atlantic flows into the ice-covered Arctic Ocean, and how this might impact the Arctic in a warming climate. Writer Dallas Murphy chronicled the cruise in a series of essays. (Photo by Amy Cooper, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
