This week on World Ocean Radio we introduce listeners to two women who are planning to embark on an unsupported exploration in the Arctic: 270 days at the Bamsebu trapper’s cabin in the high north. Hearts in the Ice is a citizen science initiative that Sunniva Sorby and Hilde Falun Strom will undertake in August 2019 as a means to create a global dialogue around the changes we are experiencing in the Polar regions that impact us all. We invite you to join the conversation at heartsintheice.com.

The Catalog of Life: Data Collection for a Sustainable Future

The Catalog of Life is an online database of the world's known species of animals, plants, fungi and micro-organisms. It holds the essential information on the names, relationships and distributions of over 1.8 million species worldwide. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we discuss the importance of such indices to help address the concerns of sustainability and biodiversity on our fast-changing planet. And we argue that, in addition to the collection of data, we must all put this knowledge to use for the future of the ocean and of all living things.

Understanding the Value of the Ocean

In this episode of World Ocean Radio we discuss publications, reports, and projects integral to the evolution of ocean policy and science, including the Atlas of Ocean Wealth, published by the Nature Conservancy in 2016, which provides a tool for understanding the true value of what Nature provides in previously unrecognized ways.

This week on World Ocean Radio we provide our annual observations on the Arctic Circle Conference in Reykjavik, Iceland. This year's report highlights not only on a seemingly insurgent presence by the Chinese but also a diminished presence by the United States, whose typically consequential interest in the Arctic was lacking. Also noticeably absent from the conversation: a perceived lack of representation by the Arctic's indigenous peoples. We'll discuss these things and more in this week's episode.

Three Arctic Roads and a Melting Sea Highway

The first Arctic highway was the sea: a moving, shifting frozen system that allowed its inhabitants to be sustained for generations. Since 1974, two more roads have been carved from the Arctic landscape: the first to connect oil fields in the north to consumers in the south; and the second, opened this year, to connect Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk. This second project, more of a local endeavor, links the land's indigenous peoples to economic opportunity and affordable goods and resources. This week on World Ocean Radio we talk about these three roads and their impacts on the Arctic, for better and for worse.

Underwater Wars: Marine Tech in the Information Age

Ships have long been used for exploration and trade, as well as for colonial expansion and conflicts at sea. We are using technological achievement to advance global influence, and the rules of engagement are ever-changing. In this week's episode of World Ocean Radio we share new technologies that accelerate sub-sea activities, some of the new technological achievements now being deployed, and the ways that the underwater zone is being used for offensive and defensive strategies in the modern age.

Climate Refugees: Reaping the Whirlwind

2018 was a summer of extremes: hurricanes, wildfires, drought, floods, heat, earthquakes, tsunami. It's increasingly evident that human intervention is largely responsible for these natural disasters and their outcomes. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we talk about the distribution of loss, recognizing the poorest among us to be the least resilient in the face of such disasters, and most likely to be affected by them. We discuss the growing likelihood that climate change will cause increased displacement around the planet and will make refugees out of many of us. Where will we go? What will we do when we get there? How will we survive?
