Breaking Through

WHOI research engineer Peter Koski prepares an ice tethered profiler for Arctic deployment, working in the science lab of the Coast Guard Cutter Healy. Koski was one of 30 scientists aboard the Healy this fall, deploying sensors and autonomous submarines in the Bering Sea. The team was studying how environmental factors affect the water below the ice surface, for example, by stratifying it into warmer and colder layers. The Healy is one of two ice breakers in U.S. service and is the only military ship dedicated to conducting ice research in the Arctic.
