I wonder what is so interesting about the Laptev Bite, Polarstern have spend a lot of time in the area:

Set the track history to 1000 hrs.

I found this nice weekly log of their activities, http://www.awi.de/de/infrastruktur/schiffe/polarstern/wochenberichte/alle_expeditionen/ps_85_87_ark_xxviii/ps87/15_september_2015/  It talks a lot about core samples, but I would expect they do a bunch of other stuff too.  I imagine the interest is just the opportunity to work quickly and easily in the ice-free conditions.

Both groups on the Oden and Polarstern are doing studies of the the Lomonosov Ridge. Here's a write up of some of the work:

Are you planting green things in the Arctic Ocean, Neven?

(You keep on posting something about cultivating a garden.)
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things because "we cannot negotiate with the melting point of ice"
