The RUSALCA mission set sail from Nome, Alaska on the Russian Research Vessel Professor Khromov on August 22, for a 40-day voyage into the Bering Strait and northwards to the Pacific side of the Arctic Ocean. RUSALCA stands for Russian-American Long Term Census of the Arctic, and also means mermaid in Russian.  RUSALCA is managed by NOAA¹s Arctic Research Program with contribution from Ocean Exploration and Research, and in Russia by Group Alliance. The public can learn more about this international expedition through blog posts, written by Reuters reporter Jeffrey Jones, who is onboard the first leg of the 2009 RUSALCA expedition.
