ARICE Webinar Data Management

The Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium (ARICE) and Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) invite for a webinar on Data Management, on 17 December 9-10:30 am GMT.
The aim of this webinar is to provide an overview of current statues in data management, planning and best practices as well as advances in data presentation, integration and interpretation.

The presentation webinar for the case studies from the APECS-APPLICATE-YOPP online course will take place tomorrow from 2 pm GMT (convert to your local time zone here).

The ARICE team DEArice is now on board the icebreaker Kapitan Dranitsyn in Tromsø for the MOSAiC Expedition leg 2. DEArice is one out of eleven proposals submitted to the ARICE call for ship-time in the 2018 call and selected by the ARICE´s Scientific Liaison Panel for ship-time funded on the MOSAiC expedition.

The ARICE team GO-WEST is now on board the research vessel Sikuliaq in the Beaufort Sea. GO-WEST is one out of eleven proposals in the 2018 call for or ship-time and selected by the ARICE´s Scientific Liaison Panel for ship-time funding on the Sikuliaq as part of the ARICE project. The project is on “Sea-ice association of polar cod and its prey in the western Arctic Ocean (GO-WEST)”.

MOSAiC expedition

AWI has relaunched the website where complete information on the largest Arctic research expedition – MOSAiC - can easily be found.

An entire year trapped in the Arctic ice, The largest Central Arctic expedition ever

In September 2019 the German research icebreaker Polarstern will depart from Tromsø, Norway and, once it has reached its destination, will spend the next year drifting through the Arctic Ocean, trapped in the ice. A total of 600 people from 17 countries, who will be supplied by other icebreakers and aircraft, will participate in the expedition - and several times that number of researchers will subsequently use the data gathered to take climate and ecosystem research to the next level. The mission will be spearheaded by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI).

ARICE contributes to the MOSAiC Expedition by funding the project DEARice and by supporting the MOSAiC School
