On 26 July, 2012 our ocean-science party, with members from Iceland, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States, boarded the northbound British Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross in Reykjavik, Iceland for a thirty-day expedition along the East Greenland Coast to the High-Arctic island of Spitsbergen. We needed to come close aboard that fantastically wild Greenland coast in order to understand a vital component of the circulation of the Atlantic ocean—on which world climate stability depends. This team, aboard other research vessels, has studied other Arctic avenues, out in the Iceland, Irminger and Greenland Seas, but this time we went much farther north, into the ice.

In this channel are the 14 mini episodes charting the life and science aboard the research vessel, video montages of some of the more spectacular scenery encountered and a selection of timelapses from the expedition. We hope you enjoy! For further information, visit the expedition website:
