Icebreaker USCGC HEALY (WAGB-20) suffered fire in the evening Aug 18, in one of the two of propulsion electric motors, in Gulf of Alaska, shortly after leaving Seward, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. The acoustic signals propagate throughout the Arctic Ocean and the time period of the signals between each rig is used to calculate the mean temperature in the deep sea. [21] The resupply was vital to the city, and was the first-ever winter fuel delivery from the water in Western Alaska. Everyone on board has undergone thorough Covid-19 tests. If these are not recorded in a short period of time, there is a risk that important climate data will be lost. Designed to conduct a wide range of research activities, Healy provides more than 4,200 square feet (390 m2) of scientific laboratory space, numerous electronic sensor systems, oceanographic winches, and accommodations for up to 50 scientists. If the insulation on the electric motor has burned it will be out for a while. Healy successfully escorted the freighter American Tern and the tanker Richard G. Matthieson. The job was supposed to be done by the the United States' Coast Guard icebreaker USCGC Healy, now at repair after suffering a fire and propulsion failure in August.
