The 2015 field season ended due to sea ice. Our future is uncertain due to funding, but we hope to be operational again next year, so please check back! Meanwhile, you can view the Image Archive for past data.

Please contact us with questions or comments on any of the information contained in this web site.
Your observations and questions about what we are seeing are greatly appreciated!!
Special thanks to Point Lay, Wainwright, Barrow, Cully, Olgoonik, and UIC.
