Canadian scientists involved in U.S. Coast Guard study of Arctic Ocean

This sounds like a great example of international collaboration, even if it *is* somewhat embarrassing that Canada is not supplying a ship. I wonder if the scientists are federal government? There was no quote or other information about the Canadian side other than to state that Canada helped choose the sites to be studied.

What makes Hamilton’s first expedition with the Healy unlike any other Arctic study is the international partnership to create a baseline for the area’s biogeochemical cycles — the cycles of chemical elements and compounds in the ecosystem. The study is part of the U.S. Geotraces project, an international study of the marine biogeochemical cycles.
