    Coast Guard Cutter Healy conducts Arctic patrol in support of the Office of Naval Research

    ARCTIC OCEAN – Jason Gobat of the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington, Seattle, poses for a photo Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018, about 715 miles north of Barrow, Alaska. Gobat is the lead engineer who designed, built and programmed a series of sea gliders, which are autonomous submarines used to measure water conductivity, temperature, depth, oxygen and other measurements in the Arctic Ocean. Once deployed, the sea gliders are controlled by pilots at the Applied Physics Lab at the University of Washington in Seattle. Approximately 30 scientists are aboard the Healy to study stratified ocean dynamics and how environmental factors affect the water below the ice surface for the Office of Naval Research. The Healy is one of two ice breakers in U.S. service and is the only military ship dedicated to conducting ice research in the Arctic. (NyxoLyno Cangemi/U.S. Coast Guard)
