ABSTRACT
The article reports on a four-week cruise initiated by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to map a portion of the Arctic sea floor. The cruise involved NOAA'S Office of Coast Survey, the National Science Foundation and the University of New Hampshire' Joint Hydrographic Center. The data gathered during the cruise should offer valuable information for better understanding sea floor processes and fisheries habitat.
