The 2010/11 Oden expedition to the Amundsen Sea in Antarctica was the fifth scientific expedition coordinated jointly by the National Science Foundation, the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, and the Swedish Research Council. This was a two-ship expedition, and a rendezvous with R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer permitted the transfer of equipment and scientists.

The Swedish scientific party on Oden was devoted to studies of oceanography, the biology and chemistry of sea ice and water, the dynamics and evolution of epidemic diseases in seals, and benthic communities. The Swedes on the Palmer team studied the role of bacteria in the carbon cycle, crab predators invading warming Antarctic waters, as well as iodine, iron, and other tracers and their roles in the Amundsen Sea Polynya.
