Few methods presently exist for routine benthic survey and sampling operations under permanent moving ice in high latitudes. Many benthic survey and sampling techniques commonly employed for blue-water oceanography are unsuitable for operations in ice covered seas due to the constrined maneuverability inherent in icebreaker operations. Over-theside deployments with lowered instruments prohibit ice-breaking and constrain the ship to the wind-driven motion of the ice. We propose that hybrid remotely operated vehicles (HROVs) with light data-only tethers could provide significantly enhanced under-ice scientific access to the world's high-latitude oceans. This paper identifies operational obstacles to benthic survey and sampling operations posed by permanent moving ice cover and proposes solutions to these obstacles.
