Its purpose was to assess the various energy components responsible for maintaining the perennial sea ice of the Arctic. Earlier, after a long week waiting in Tuktoyaktuk, NWT. for decent flying weather, most of us had boarded the Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker Des Grosiellier, which was to serve as our drifting base for the next year, anticipating an arduous trip following our escort icebreaker (the CCS Louis St. Laurent) as it battered its way through thick ice toward the center of the Beaufort Gyre. Instead, those of us who had been in that part of the Arctic before were astonished at how easy our passage was in ice often a meter or less thick.
