Caption: A new US GEOTRACES program is moving full-steam ahead into the implementation phase for the collection of critical geochemical data from the Arctic Ocean. Icebreakers from the US, like the Healy, as well as vessels from different nations will be employed in the field. The effort, led by Dr. David Kadko from the University of Miami, will study how the carbon budget, geochemical cycles, and ecosystems in the Arctic will respond to rapidly changing climate conditions.
