Hg in the sea is going to the North Pole!

More cruise action coming your way! I will be participating in the U.S. GEOTRACES Arctic transect (map below) this summer (2015). The cruise will begin and end in Dutch Harbor, Alaska passing through the Bering Strait into the ice covered Arctic Ocean. We will collect water samples and venture out onto the ice onboard the Healy, an icebreaker owned and operated by the United States Coast Guard. Cross-over stations marked on the map (red crosses) will be sampled by separate GEOTRACES cruises from Canada and Germany to compare results with our international colleagues. More updates on cruise planning and preparations to come, sailing August 7-October 10 (that’s 70 days at sea!).
