AGENSI is also at the 2nd GoNorth expedition

The 2nd GoNorth expedition has just come to an end. We had Katja Häkli representing AGENSI on board RV Kronprins Harken for this expedition to the Gakkel Ridge and Lucky Ridge. Here she is collecting mud from the box corer (Foto: Daniel Albert GoNorth/SINTEF). The trip was eventful: early on the ship needed to return to the mainland for repairs, and later the sea ice was too heavy for the planned combined work with the German research vessel Polarstern. So back-up plans had to be rolled out. For AGENSI, we collected sediments with the boxcorer and multicorer from permanently sea ice covered regions.
