ARICE Call Results 2018

The results for ARICE Call for ship-time propsals 2018 has now been published. Eleven proposals were submitted to the ARICE call for proposals, only one of them not complying with the eligibility criteria. Ten proposals were sent for external review (with the aim of 3 external reviews per proposal).

A success story on the Arice project has been published online on the webpage of the European Commission.

ARICE invites for a webinar organized by APECS and IOPAN. This webinar is dedicated to pre-cruise planning and preparing for ship-based research activities. Dr Agnieszka Beszczynska-Möller, physical oceanographer at Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences (IOPAN) with extensive experience as a cruise leader of multiple Arctic scientific expeditions, will talk about planning ship-based and long-term oceanographic field studies and pre-cruise logistics.

APECS, ARICE and the MOSAiC partners work together to organize the MOSAiC School 2019 on board of the support icebreaker RV Akademik Fedorov. This 6-week training is part of the first leg of the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) which will be the first year-around expedition exploring the coupled Arctic climate system. The project has been designed by an international consortium of leading polar research institutions under the umbrella of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), led by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI)Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) and the University of Colorado, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES).

In the MOSAiC Project, RV Polarstern will spend 350 days (September 2019 until September 2020) frozen into the drifting Arctic sea ice. 300 scientists will investigate the Arctic climate processes that couple the atmosphere, ocean, sea ice, bio-geochemistry and ecosystem. The results of MOSAiC will enhance the understanding of the regional and global consequences of Arctic climate change and sea-ice loss, and improve weather and climate predictions.
