The Healy arrived at Dutch Harbor, Alaska early morning of September 28, 2011. The USGS Arctic Ocean Acidification Team disembarked there for the flight home. Water samples taken on the cruise will remain on the Healy for a couple of months until she arrives back in port at Seattle, Washington.
In Seattle, landside members of the team will unload the samples from the Healy, load them onto a refrigerated truck, and drive them back to St. Petersburg, Florida, for analyses.
Thank you for following us on our journey to the Arctic Ocean. Please stay tuned for more updates and highlights from the cruise!
