From across the United States and the world a team of experts is packed and on the way to Nome, Alaska to joining the R/V Sikuliaq – pronounced [see-KOO-lee-auk] – a 261-foot oceanographic research ship capable of supporting scientists in the ice-choked waters of Alaska and the polar regions.
The ArcticMix team will be together in Nome by August 24th to prepare their new ocean-going home to depart for the Beaufort Sea on August 27th, a marginal sea of the Arctic Ocean, located north of the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Alaska, and west of Canada’s Arctic islands.
