The Planned Research Vessel Movements in Alaska and Arctic Waters: 2023 Research Season is now LIVE!

Sarah Tucker May 8, 2023

We are pleased to launch the 2023 Research Vessel Activities compilation webpage that provides information on planned research expeditions through Alaska and Arctic waters. The aim of this outreach tool is to improve collaboration among Arctic researchers throughout the year and to help with communications and coordination with Local and Indigenous communities.

On May 25, 9am AKT / 1pm ET,  the IARPC Field Operations, Sea Ice, and Marine Ecosystems Communities of Practice will co-host a Pre-Field Season Meeting for a preview of the upcoming field activities. At this meeting, researchers will share information about their upcoming expeditions that is relevant to other researchers and to coastal communities. This meeting is open to anyone who wants to join and will be recorded.

IARPC will also post when each expedition begins on Facebook and Twitter. Follow us on these platforms to be regularly reminded when expeditions are heading into the field. If you have questions about upcoming research expeditions, please contact Sarah Tucker (Arctic Research Program at NOAA’s Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program & IARPC),, or Katy Smith (NSF),
