Over the course of the past two summers, oceanographer, Dave Sutherland, from the University of Oregon, along with a small team of researchers have devoted three or four weeks of their summer boating from iceberg to iceberg off the coast of Greenland to conduct research into how climate change is affecting both the shipping industry and the climate.

They are doing this with the assistance of LiveViewGPS tracking units that have been set up on over a dozen icebergs in the area. The GPS tracking technology collects data throughout the year providing researchers with the information they need to draw various conclusions about the icebergs in real time and from a great distance.
