Phase 2 Arctic Survey set to begin.

From August 7 to September 17, 2015, the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent and the CCGS Terry Fox will be  on a six week scientific survey to collect data needed for Canada’s Arctic continental shelf submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

The Geological Survey of Canada, part of Natural Resources Canada, and the Canadian Hydrographic Service, part of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, are responsible for this scientific work.  The vessels will survey an area in the Eurasian Basin on the Lomonosov Ridge and areas in the vicinity of the North Pole.

This is the second phase of work that was started by these 2 ships last summer.
