Cutters Become First N.A.

Surface Ships To Reach

North Pole

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)

Cutter Polar Sea and the Canadian

Coast Guard Cutter Louis S. Ste.

Laurent reached the North Pole on

August 22, becoming the first North

American surface ships to reach the

North Pole.

The Polar Sea is a 399-ft. (122-m) icebreaker from Seattle, Wash., and the Ste. Laurent is a 396-ft. (121-m) icebreaker from Halifax, Nova

Scotia. The two ships are taking part in Arctic Ocean Section 1994, a joint U.S./Canada science project.

They are conducting an extensive, multidisciplinary scientific study that began in Nome, Alaska on July 24 and will end in late September in

Barrow, Alaska.

This expedition is the culmina- tion of four years of joint planning by government agencies in the U.S. and

Canada. Researchers from more than 20 institutions will participate in the studies, which suggest that all aspects of global change may be amplified in the Arctic. Until now, the sparsity of basic shipborne mea- surements of the world's least-stud- ied ocean have made it impossible to understand the processes which drive global climate change.
