 The current status of Arctic sea ice

ACCESS expeditions

ACCESS has a comprehensive fieldwork programme planned that encompasses all our study areas. Most of the cruises take place in Arctic during boreal summer (including late spring and early fall) due to the harsh climatic conditions and involve different partner institutions. In the first year of the project alone, we already had 2 expeditions. Every opportunity of accessing the Arctic is used in order to further our knowledge of this very special environment.

Wherever possible, we plan to bring you reports from our teams whilst at sea, via this website. Please use the links below to find out what our teams have been doing this summer....

 Summer 2011


The KOPRI-led, R/V Araon 2011 Arctic cruise afforded us with a unique opportunity for gaining access to the remote CBL region. Researchers from Spain, UK, Korea, and from other European and American countries combined efforts and pulled together an observational program centered around Araon’s capabilities and destination that addresses key scientific questions regarding the fast-changing Arctic sea ice regime, with a focus on sea ice dynamics and thermodynamics.
