Abstract:

The EPOCA 95 expedition Environmental Pollution and Oceanography in Arctic Seas departed Hammerfest, Norway on the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment NDRE ship H.U. Sverdrup II on 25 August 1995 and returned to the same port on 25 September 1995. This cruise was planned to collect data and samples in the Kara Sea in order to assess the impact of anthropogenic pollution both radioactive and chemical on one of the marginal Arctic seas and to study the oceanography of the Kara Sea in order to better understand circulation and transport pathways of potential pollutants. This expedition included measurements near dump sites for the fueled reactors dumped by the former Soviet Union. jg p4
