Scientists around the Arctic plan to survey and catalog the marine species that live within the remote and largely unexplored Arctic Ocean. This radio broadcast from 2003 reports on what areas scientists plan to focus on, such as the ocean beneath the Arctic ice pack and life on the ocean floor, as well as hydrothermal vents, methane seeps, volcanoes and even entire mountain ranges that have never been seen. There is also discussion about the need to study deep-sea basins and ridges, small animal groups, and seasonal variations in the sea ice habitat. The clip is 4 minutes and 29 seconds in length.
