The Barents Sea Observer reports on Norwegian Coast Guard efforts to recover data from a study of Arctic under ice temperatures that might otherwise be lost as a result of the breakdown of USCGC Healy.

Seeing the performance of this ship, in recently reaching the North Pole, has to be good news for the Canadian Navy and Coast Guard, in that they are building eight similar Harry DeWolf class ships (6 RCN and 2 CCG).

Thanks to Tups for bringing this to my attention and for his many previous contributions.
