Air Pollution on Cruise Ship Decks

This study measures ultrafine and nanoparticulate pollution on the deck of four Carnival Corporation ships operating under the Carnival, Holland America, and Princess lines.

This map shows all Carnival Corporation ships traveling from 50 degrees latitude and north in 2017. You can click on each ship track to find the name of the ship, its flag state, its operator, the amount of heavy fuel oil it burned, its CO2 and black carbon emissions, and the distance and time it spent traveling throughout the study year in this fragile region. The habitats of several key Arctic species are also provided.

It would cost passengers just the price of a glass of wine a day if cruise ships would stop burning highly polluting heavy fuel oil (HFO) in the fragile Arctic environment.
