SCICEX Program Highlighted in Witness the Arctic

The Science Ice Exercise (SCICEX) Program, that uses U. S. Navy submarines to collect data about the Arctic Ocean, has been highlighted in two articles in the Spring 2015 issue of Witness the Arctic published by the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS). The first article, Teaching an Old Submarine Data Collection Program New Tricks, provides a high level description of the project and the data available including Arctic Ocean bathymetry, hydrography, and sea ice draft. The second article located below the first one, A Labor of Love Brings Together Civilian Scientists and the U.S. Navy, provides a history of how and why the SCICEX program came into being. For more information on this program, see the SCICEX Web site.
