Glacial tongues

Glistening Glaciers

On the way to the high Arctic to study how the polar ocean circulates, the crew aboard the Norwegian research vessel Lance took in this scenic sight—the glacial tongues of Northeast Svalbard. During the September 2013 expedition, WHOI scientist Bob Pickart will retrieve moorings and measure warm water flowing into the Arctic. While at sea, the research team will be posting regular updates and interacting with schools. (Photo by Amy Cooper, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
