Description

SWERUS-C3 was an international research expedition using the icebreaker Oden in the Arctic Ocean. The expedition was a Swedish/Russian/American collaboration, and some 80 researchers will operated in the northern stretches of the Laptev Sea, the East Siberian Sea and the Chukchi Sea. The researchers studied the interactions between the thawing cryosphere, the carbon system and the climate system.

The expedition embarked from Tromsø, Norway on 6 July and proceeded along the Russian polar sea to Barrow, Alaska. Researchers and crew were changed on 20 August in Barrow, when the second leg of the expedition began. The route back to Scandinavia crossed the Lomonosov Ridge, an underwater mountain chain near the North Pole, and the expedition returned to Tromsø on 4 October.

The main scientific questions concerned the linkages between climate, cryosphere, and carbon - hence the name “C3”. The researchers studied emissions of methane stored in the permafrost on the seabed as well as carbon transport routes in the sea and ice.

The main issues researchers were seeking to address during the first leg
