MOSAiC expedition

AWI has relaunched the website https://www.mosaic-expedition.org/ 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).

Greenland 22°C degrees hotter than normal, the Canadian and Siberian permafrost melting with unprecedented speed, local populations facing new challenges to survive, the European climate under the impact of the changing Arctic - the Arctic is ever more in the headlines. The EU-funded Arctic research projects met in Brussels to discuss synergies and common strategies to boost their impact on policy and people.

The Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium (ARICE) and Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) invite for a webinar on Proposal Writing, on 25 April 9-10 am GMT. The webinar is organized in two parts.

In the first part, Research Support Officer Imke Fries (Alfred Wegener Institute) will give a general introduction to successful proposal writing. Imke has been supporting the drafting of numerous national and EU project proposals and will provide tips and tricks on successful proposal writing.

The full ARICE consortium met on 28th and 29th April 2019 at Instituto de Geografia e Ordenamento do Território (IGOT), Universidade de Lisboa for its 2nd General Assembly. Fourty participants from all over Europe, Canada and USA discussed the progress made in ARICE and planned it´s future activities, such as the next call for ship-time which will open in April 2019.
