This is a travelogue associated with the St. Roch II "Voyage of Rediscovery" expedition, 2000. Data collected during this scientific cruise will be used in part for my Master's thesis in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am working under the direction of Dr. Jackie Grebmeier, Associate Research Professor at UTK and member of the US Arctic Research Commission.
Please visit the homepage for Arctic Marine Ecology and Biogeochemistry for more information on current University of Tennessee arctic research programs.
