STRAIT 2014 CRUISE MAP
As part of Bering Strait projects funded by NSF-AON (Arctic Observing Network) and ONR, in June/July 2014 a team of US scientists undertook a ~ 7 day cruise in the Bering Strait and southern Chukchi Sea region on the US vessel Norseman II, operated by Norseman Maritime Charters.
The primary goals of the expedition were:
1) recovery of 3 moorings carrying physical oceanographic (Woodgate-ONR), bio-optical (Whitledge) and marine mammal acoustic (Stafford) instrumentation. These moorings were deployed in the Bering Strait region in 2013 from the Norseman II. The funding for the physical oceanographic components of these moorings comes from ONR.
2) deployment of 3 moorings in the Bering Strait region, carrying physical oceanographic (Woodgate), bio-optical (Whitledge) and marine mammal acoustic (Stafford) instrumentation. The funding for the physical oceanographic components of these moorings comes from NSF-AON.
3) accompanying CTD sections (without water sampling).
4) collection of accompanying ship’s underway data (surface water properties, ADCP, meteorological data).

Depth contours every 10m from the International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean (IBCAO) [Jakobsson et al., 2000]. Lower panels give detail of strait region at the start (left) and end (right) of the cruise.
