View a slideshow of some images from the RUSALCA 2009 exploration. On August 22, this mission set sail from Nome, Alaska, on the Russian research vessel Professor Khromov for a 40-day voyage into the Bering Strait and northwards to the Pacific side of the Arctic Ocean. RUSALCA stands for Russian-American Long Term Census of the Arctic. The word rusalca also means mermaid in Russian.
