Hidden beauty in Artic waters

Some scientists have very cool jobs. You could be a scientist too!

Chief Scientist, Rolf Gradinger, deploys water samples below the ice to conduct real life experiments on sea ice algae and phytoplankton.
He and 44 other scientists team and 75 Coast Guard crew teamed upin 2005 to research and study for one month the hidden creatures in a remote part of the Artic Ocean.  Around the clock, many many science experiments were conducted. They ranged from experiments using using ROV (robots) and instrument deployments, to others filtering water samples and examining creatures collected under a microscope. The science team examined all realms of the Arctic Ocean, from the sea-ice cover to the deep sea floor.
