Images: Summer Under Arctic Ice

This summer WHOI scientist Rob Reves-Sohn and colleagues are working for 40 days in the Arctic from the Swedish icebreaker Oden. The experimental vehicles they are using must navigate through the ice-covered ocean then explore the water's deeper regions. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
WHOI technician (and resident artist) Devin Ruddick (left) painted a namesake adornment on an underwater vehicle called Puma. Rob Reves-Sohn (right), the expedition?s chief scientist, is sending Puma on its first-ever scientific missions. Puma is autonomous, which means it has no pilot and can swim on its own.

Sometimes during oceanographic research cruises, it is customary for scientists to cook for the crew. Midway through the Arctic cruise, Reves-Sohn helped prepare a Mexican meal. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
