Coast Guard conducts Arctic Domain Awareness flight


The crew of an Air Station Kodiak HC-130 Hercules airplane overfly the Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star in the Chukchi Sea north of Wainwright, Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Coast Guard air and cutter crews work together to conduct Arctic missions ranging from scientific research to search and rescue and international exercises.
Petty Officer 3rd Class Jesse Sanchez and Petty Officer 3rd Class Nathan Matthews, both aviation maintenance technicians, prepare to deploy two of six Aircraft Expendable Conductivity Temperature Depth or AXCTD and Aircraft Expendable Current Profiler or AXCP sensors from an Air Station Kodiak HC-130 Hercules airplane above the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. The sensors gather data about the ocean as they descend through the water column and are deployed through a partnership between the Coast Guard and the University of Washington's Polar Science Center.
Roger Andersen, senior mathematician at the University of Washington's Polar Science Center, and Axel Schweiger, principal scientist and chair of the University of Washington's Polar Science Center, review air sample data received from a Dropsonde sensor while aboard a Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane above the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. The Dropsonde sensor's data paired with other research helps scientists understand and predict weather and ice conditions as the season progresses.
Axel Schweiger, principal scientist and chair at the University of Washington's Polar Science Center, prepares one of five Dropsonde sensors for deployment while aboard a Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane above the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. The Dropsonde sensors collect temperature, humidity and wind readings as they travel from 10,000 feet to sea level.

Axel Schweiger, principal scientist and chair at the University of Washington's Polar Science Center, prepares a Dropsonde sensor to be deployed from a Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane while and Roger Andersen, senior mathematician at the University of Washington's Polar Science Center, calibrates the receiving equipment above the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. The polar science team has been working with Air Station Kodiak to collect data on the Arctic since 2009.
A Dropsonde sensor acquires a GPS signal prior to being deployed by the crew of a Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane above the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. The Dropsonde's temperature, humidity and wind readings were collected by the University of Washington's Polar Science Center team as it traveled from 10,000 feet to sea level.
