First stop, Seattle

Last week researchers participating in the upcoming Arctic GEOTRACES cruise gathered in Seattle, Washington to meet the Healy Icebreaker at its home port. Scientists had the opportunity to load gear and set up labs on the ship – I was out of the country for a conference but the rest of team Hg got the job done! We will meet the Healy in Dutch Harbor, Alaska to set sail on August 9th – adventure time is fast approaching and I’m getting excited.

Check out the following radio news clips from Alaska with my friend Dr. Anna Aguilar-Islas and from Seattle with Chief Scientist Dr. David Kadko.
