Group: Summary

   The Submarine Arctic Science Program, SCICEX, is a federal interagency 
   collaboration among the operational Navy, research agencies, and the marine 
   research community to use nuclear-powered submarines for scientific studies of 
   the Arctic Ocean. Unlike surface ships, submarines have the unique ability to 
   operate and take measurements regardless of sea ice cover, weather conditions, 
   and time of year. This allows for a broad and comprehensive investigation of 
   an entire ocean basin. The goal of the program is to acquire comprehensive 
   data about Arctic sea ice, water properties (biological, chemical, and 
   hydrographic), and water depth (bathymetry) to improve our understanding of 
   the Arctic Ocean basin and its role in the Earth's climate system. SCICEX is 
   important because it adds critical pieces to the overall information needed to 
   analyze sea ice and ocean dynamics. Data collection began in 1993 and is on 
   going.
