Research Cruise Status

Each spring, summer, and fall, numerous research vessels travel through Alaska and Arctic waters. IARPC, federal agencies, and the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS) compile planned research expedition dates, planned routes, and research goals. Our hope is that researchers can use this information to coordinate activities, and that communities can use it to understand what vessels are in their waters and how to contact them if necessary. You can find the updated information on the IARPC website, including 2022 expedition descriptions (scroll down).

Please contact Cynthia Garcia-Eidell (IARPC/NOAA GOMO Arctic Research Program),, or Jill Prewitt (AOOS),, with any questions.

Please share this information and distribute it to communities of interest.
