Recordings of selected MOSAiC School lectures provide an overview on coupled system research at MOSAiC and five main topics of the MOSAiC project; Atmosphere, Ocean, Biogeochemistry, Ecosystem and Modelling. The lecture recordings are freely available on the APECS vimeo channel and below.

Lecture recording “Coupled System Science” by Matthew Shupe

26 September 2019, 56:02 minutes

Matthew Shupe, research scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado and NOAA Earth System Research Laboratories, is one of the lead designers for MOSAiC. Matthew presented an overview on aims and objectives of interdisciplinary research plan of MOSAIC with a focus onthe interactions across different components of the Earth System.

Lecture recording “The Role of the Ocean in Arctic Change” by Timothy Stanton

24 September 2019, 58:28 minutes

Timothy Stanton, professor emeritus at the Naval Postgraduate School and adjunct professor at the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, is part of the MOSAiC Team Ocean and led the Distributed Network team. Tim presented on the role of the ocean, with a focus on ocean mixing and turbulence and discussed seasonal Arctic sea ice melting.

Lecture recording “Clouds in the Arctic System” by Christopher Cox

23 September 2019, 49:55 minutes

Christopher Cox, research scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado and NOAA Earth System Research Laboratories, is part of MOSAiC Team Atmosphere. Chris presented the role of clouds and their influence on the surface energy exchange that facilitate processes of melting and freezing of the cryosphere                                                                           

Lecture recording “The Basics of Biogeochemistry” by Sebastian Rokitta

2:09:42 hours

Sebastian Rokitta, research scientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research and the University of Bremen, is part of the MOSAiC Team Biogeochemistry. Sebastian presented on the basics of biogeochemistry, including carbonate chemistry, carbon and nitrogen cycling and the role of phytoplankton in interaction with their Arctic environment.

Lecture recording “Ecosystem Research in MOSAiC” by Allison Fong

26. September 2019, 49:39 minutes

Allison Fong, research scientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, is leading the MOSAiC Team Ecosystem. Allison presented an overview on coupled system observations and synoptic measurements with a focus on temporal evolution of biological and ecological processes relevant to different components of the Earth System.

Lecture recording “Modelling Drift Forecasts” by Thomas Rackow

1:15:16 hours

Thomas Rackow, research scientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, is a specialized modeler and joined the MOSAiC School as Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) lecturer. Thomas introduced the method and topic of modelling in general and presented on drift forecasts with a perspective on drifting sea ice, icebergs, as well as drifting RV Polarstern.
