A group of researchers on board a German icebreaker in the Arctic Ocean was supposed to return in early April. Then the pandemic struck. What's it like quarantining on ice?

This new collaboration will lead to research which will inform community leaders at the federal, state, local levels, as well as Alaska Native leadership, on mitigation efforts to address our greatest climate and ocean challenges in the Arctic and the High North.

“I have to admit that I do sometimes wish I could stay on the Arctic Ocean a little while longer.” A researcher left for the Arctic in January, before COVID-19 changed the world. She says she’s not in any rush to get off the icebreaker:

Like millions of people, Carin Ashjian is stuck inside for most of the day during the pandemic. Ashjian, however, can't exactly step outside for a quick walk. She's stuck in the middle of the Arctic Ocean aboard a German research ship.

Arctic Ocean ecosystems may be at greater risk from new and emerging viruses than other water bodies, especially as it undergoes rapid change, explained Martin Nweeia and Harris Lewin at a recent event on human-to-wildlife transmission of COVID-19:

Temperatures along the shores of the Arctic Ocean have the chance to hit the double-digits, while parts of southern Ontario will be within several degrees of the freezing mark.

Each year, the sea ice cover blanketing the Arctic Ocean & nearby seas thickens & expands during the fall & winter, reaching its maximum yearly extent. On March 17, the Arctic sea ice cover peaked at 5.59 million square miles, the 2nd lowest max on record:

NEW: It was 84 degrees near the Arctic Ocean this weekend as carbon dioxide hit its highest level in human history:

Federal judge declares Trump’s push to open up Arctic and Atlantic Ocean to oil and gas drilling illegal

The Arctic Ocean's older, thicker blanket of sea ice is nearly gone. What remains is younger, thinner, more variable ice, according to research. The new ice grows in the winter and melts in the summer, but doesn't last from year to year. More:

We’re monitoring the “new normal” level of sea ice in Arctic Ocean. Take a look: @NASAEarth 

New study: Arctic ocean not just melting, it's acidifying rapidly--to a level 'dangerous for some marine organisms.'

Obama bans oil and gas drilling in large areas of the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean, a move that can't be undone by an incoming president.
