Arctic Research Expedition?

Adrian McCallum
Dear Cryolisters

I was the scientist on the 2011 Catlin Arctic Expedition.

Although data-collection via such means is atypical, we continue to publish peer-reviewed analyses of our findings, and I believe that cost-effective ‘intimate’ expeditions such as these, can collect valuable high spatiotemporal-resolution data, not obtainable via other means; I argued this recently in ECO magazine:

The NSF recently published their solicitation for Arctic Research Opportunities:

In collaboration with US researchers, I would like to submit a proposal to conduct an ‘intimate’ cost-effective Arctic scientific research expedition, to obtain high spatiotemporal resolution CTD, ADCP etc. data in the high Arctic, probably during atypical periods such as winter/spring.

I am based at an Australian university and I don’t believe that any of my existing US research colleagues/collabrators have the interest or capacity to prosecute such an expedition; therefore, I am putting this call out to seek any US-based researchers who may be interested in ‘working-up’ an Arctic research expedition, based upon these lines…

Thanks very much for your consideration of my request.
