45 members of the science team and 75 Coast Guard crew teamed up for the month long Hidden Ocean expedition to remote parts of the Arctic Ocean. A multitude of science operations were conducted around the clock, ranging from ROV and instrument deployments, to filtering water samples and examining creatures collected under a microscope. The science team examined all realms of the Arctic Ocean, from the sea-ice cover, into the pelagic realm, all the way down to the deep seafloor.
