The terrain for the scientific work conducted by  ICESCAPE scientists on July 4, 2010, was Arctic sea ice and melt ponds  in the Chukchi Sea. The five-week field mission was dedicated to  sampling the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the  ocean and sea ice. Impacts of Climate change on the Eco-Systems and  Chemistry of the Arctic Pacific Environment, or ICESCPE Mission, is a  multi-year NASA shipborne project. The bulk of the research will take  place in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas in summer of 2010 and fall of  2011.
