All along the HEALY's track, the ice floes are covered with melt puddles, and the freshwater created by the ice melt can lower the salt content of the surface water of the ocean. Ice floes turned around by the moving icebreaker frequently show a rotten appearance due to the melting processes occurring in all levels of the ice sheets.

DSSI's Global Explorer ROV descends under icy waters to study marine life in the Canada Basin, one of the deepest parts of the Arctic Ocean. Parts of the ROV have been specially configured to handle cold, and deep ocean conditions. NOAA-OER funded partial development of the ROV which was a primary tool aiding scientists in the discovery of several new species.
