Arctic Ocean

North Pole

A blustery day at the North Pole.

CPS supports researchers conducting Arctic Ocean-based field work.

Support Services may include:

  • Provision of satellite telephones for projects operating on research vessels north of 80 degrees (where traditional shipboard satellite communications are unreliable)
  • Cargo transport to and from vessel ports of call
  • Field equipment and air support for ice camps
  • Support for personnel embarking or debarking a vessel at Barrow, Alaska

Research teams are responsible for all science-related equipment for their projects. Scientists are also responsible for providing their own cold weather and personal gear, including toiletries and comfortable clothing for non-working hours.

Visit the University-National Ocean Laboratory System website for information about requesting ship time on Arctic research vessels.
