The Swedish icebreaker Oden has served as a research vessel for expeditions to polar regions, in both Arctic and Antarctic waters, since 1991. Facilities on board include scientific laboratories, space to install research containers and deep ocean winches. This enables scientists to carry out research in different disciplines.
The vessel has been used for research in, for example, marine geology and geophysics, oceanography, ecology and atmospheric science. A broad range of datasets collected during several expeditions by scientists at Stockholm University and their national and international collaborators are, or will be, available here.
Currently, the data collection contains data only from the Ryder 2019 Expedition off North Greenland.
The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and the Swedish Maritime Administration have, since 1991, regularly provided logistics for research expeditions on board icebreaker Oden.
Further data from expeditions with icebreaker Oden, managed by the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat or by other organizations than Stockholm University, are available at the Swedish National Data Service.
