Arctic Ocean 2016 - Meteorological, Oceanographic and Ship Data Collected Onboard Icebreaker Oden

This study is part of the collection Arctic Ocean 2016

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Katarina Gårdfeldt - Chalmers University of Technology

Mary-Lynn Dickson - Natural Resources Canada

Description:

Arctic Ocean 2016 is a polar research expedition in collaboration with Canada with the two icebreakers Oden and Louis S. St-Laurent.

The icebreaker Oden will depart from Longyearbyen, Svalbard, 8 August to meet up with the Canadian icebreaker Louis S. St-Laurent and launch the expedition. For six weeks, the vessels will operate in the Arctic Ocean, mainly in the Amundsen Basin and in areas around the underwater mountain ranges Lomonosov Ridge and Alpha Ridge.

The aim of the Canadian research programme is to collect data in support of Canada’s extended continental shelf submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, prepared in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The Swedish research is focused on environmental chemistry, marine geology and atmospheric research. On board Oden there will also be Danish and Norwegian researchers working with marine geology and ice management.
