Science / project plan

Sailing expedition from St. John’s to southern Greenland and up the west coast to Upernavik (farther north, if time and conditions allow). CTD profiles in fjords to compliment additional cruises in our effort to understand ice sheet-ocean interactions. GPS trackers and a small drone will be used to study iceberg trajectories and iceberg-ocean interactions.
