Free Radicals

When the CCGS Amundsen, a Canadian research ice breaker, left its home port of Quebec City in July 2007, it embarked upon a historic 15-month expedition that would have it travel across the Arctic and overwinter in the Beaufort Sea.

The scientists on board the  Amundsen might spend their days hunting for ice algae, fishing for zooplankton, or surveying the contours of the nearby ice floes. The sounds of them at work were featured on Free Radicals (science, culture and connection), a radio program that airs on CKUT (90.3 FM Montreal) on Mondays.

Listen to the show (August 18, 2008): Arctic Science (08.18.08)
