Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Expedition ARA05C was a multidisciplinary undertaking conducted in the southern Beaufort Sea on the research ice breaker RV Araon from Aug 30 to Sept 19, 2014. The program was carried out as collaboration between the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI), Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), Department of Fisheries and Ocean (DFO) with participation by Bremen University (BARUM). Multiple research experiments were undertaken to study geological processes related to degrading permafrost, fluid flow and degassing, seismostratigraphy, and associated geohazards, of the Beaufort shelf and slope region. In addition, physical and chemical oceanography measurements of the Arctic Ocean were undertaken with linked atmospheric studies from the vessel. The expedition focused on two main research areas in the Canadian Beaufort Sea: the central shelf and slope areas offshore of the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula and areas offshore of the Mackenzie Trough area.
