Oden crushing the sea ice.

The expedition will target the North-Atlantic sector of the ice-covered Arctic Ocean, relatively far north of the ice edge. The purpose is to get to the areas where warm and moist air from the south penetrates the Arctic and affects the sea ice melting. The aim is to understand this interaction between the lower latitudes and the Arctic and what happens at the onset of the annual surface melt, a central issue for many Arctic scientific disciplines.
