The route will be split up in two “legs”. I will take part in Leg 1, together with 40 other scientists, that will depart on July 6 from Tromsø (Norway) and will arrive around August 20 in Barrow (Alaska, US). In Barrow we will rotate the scientific crew and then the ships heads back towards Sweden. Örjan Gustafsson and Martin Jakobsson from Stockholm University are leading Leg 1 and Leg 2, respectively.
During the expedition I will try to keep you updated with our adventures, both regarding science but also about life onboard. You can also follow official SWERUS reports on Twitter (@SWERUS3) and Facebook.
