Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: The primary mission of Healy cruise 1102 was to collect multibeam bathymetry. Data were also collected and processed from two BGM gravimeters onboard, and water samples were collected and processed to analyze oceanic geochemistry, isotopic ratios and dissolved carbon in the Arctic Ocean.
