Heading out to remap the now ice-free areas in the Arctic. And updating bathymetric (seafloor) data last surveyed by Captain Cook two centuries ago.

Polar Cap Ice Melt will open up new shipping lanes

You mean there's an upside?

Quote:
With Arctic sea ice reaching record lows, people have begun to explore routes through Canada's Northwest Passage and the Northern Sea Route above the coast of Russia. These routes have the potential to significantly shorten transit times between Asia and both Europe and North America, reducing shipping costs and fostering international trade.
