A meeting took place among the Scientific Liaison Panel end of September 2018 to reach a consensus on the evaluation and a ranking of the proposals. All the submitted proposals were ranked as EXCELLENT but only three have been selected by the panel for funding.
Sea-ice association of polar cod and its prey in the western Arctic Ocean (GO-WEST)
DEvelopment of snow/ice/ecosystem models using winter-to-summer ARctic observations of coupled snow, ice, and ecosystem processes (DEARice)
Permafrost Carbon on the Beaufort Shelf (PECABEAU)
While GO-WEST and DEARice have been allocated a vessel and time slot, the proposal PECABEAU is still pending a logistic confirmation, due to unforeseeable uncertainties in the vessels schedule.
