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

    ARCTIC OCEAN – A crew member aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy (WAGB-20) holds shotgun shells Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018, about 715 miles north of Barrow, Alaska. A shotgun is used by a member of the polar bear watch team whenever crew members go on the ice. The Healy is underway in the Arctic with about 100 crew members and 30 scientists to deploy sensors and autonomous submarines 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 research in the Arctic. (NyxoLyno Cangemi/U.S. Coast Guard)
