SCICEX 98 Pictures at the North Pole
The submarine USS Hawkbill (SSN 666) returned to Pearl Harbor from Submarine Science Ice Expedition '98 (SCICEX) Tuesday, September 15th. The submarine departed Pearl Harbor three months ago heading north to the Arctic Ocean with a team of two Navy and five civilian scientists.
Carrying special equipment, the attack submarine became a mobile research station collecting data on water temperature, mapping the ocean bottom and measuring ice thickness.
The Hawkbill CO, Commander Perry, has provided this Website with the following pictures of the expedition taken at the North Pole.
