Arctic Edge

This multi-year, multi-disciplinary oceanography project (2002-2004) focused on understanding the flow of water from the Bering Sea onto the Chukchi and Beaufort shelves, and how this water changes as it moves into the deep Arctic basin.

I served as field photographer for three summer cruises to the Arctic Ocean. My mission was to document the scientific activities and the beauty of the Arctic Ocean. I coded the web pages and uploaded the site contents in near-real-time from the icebreaker. A group of elementary school classrooms followed my daily dispatches and wrote in questions.
