The second SEA-EU Oceanographic Campaign sets sail

R/v Oceanograf has set off on a 33-day expedition beyond the Arctic Circle, to Bodø. Over the next few weeks, the UG ship will cross the Baltic Sea and the North Sea before finally entering the waters of the Norwegian Sea. In the meantime, an international research team from the SEA-EU universities will carry out diverse research activities. The scientists from Institute of Oceanology PAN will carry out similar research on their ship r/v Oceania.

Gdańsk—Kiel–Bergen—Bodø—Malmö—Gdańsk this is the route of the BaltArctic Research Cruise. After those 33 days UG catamaran will have sailed 2,900 nautical miles, visited 5 cities and stoped at 15 research positions.

‘The BaltArctic Research Cruise is a triumph of European cooperation, while also being a continuation of the Polish tradition of polar research’, says Vicerector for International Cooperation UG Professor Anna Jurkowska-Zeidler. – ‘We are sailing on the last wave of the Baltic to see how far is the influence of our sea. We are doing this together as an alliance of European universities, but also as Polish marine research institutions.’
