Bering Sea Ice Expedition 2008

   We have completed our third Spring Ice Expedition in the Bering Sea aboard USCG Icebreaker Healy, funded by BSIERP-BEST, the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

   We collected data to examine ice, water properties, ocean currents, sediments, and biota (fish, seabirds, phytoplankton, zooplankton, mammals) in an ecosystem context. Work on the collected data will continue and be added to data from past cruises for
