A NASA-sponsored expedition onboard a U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker has punched through three-foot thick ice in the Arctic Ocean to find waters richer in algae than any other ocean region on Earth.
 This discovery is the result of an oceanographic expedition called ICESCAPE, or Impacts of Climate on EcoSystems and Chemistry of the Arctic Pacific Environment. The scientists explored the seas along Alaska’s western and northern coasts during the summers of 2010 and 2011.
