Dr Nicole Biebow, ARICE project coordinator and Dr Verónica Willmott, ARICE Project Manager, discussed the application process and how to prepare a realistic work plan.
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, talked about planning ship-based and long-term oceanographic field studies and pre-cruise logistics. Dr Allison Fong, biological oceanographer and microbial ecologist at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), is a coordinator of the ecosystem team in MOSAiC and talked about planning large-scale sea ice and oceanographic research, and the challenges of combining multiple interests of different scientific teams during expeditions. Dr Monika Kędra, biological oceanographer and ecologist from IOPAN, shared her practical experience on planning and preparing Arctic multidisciplinary research with a main focus on marine ecology and biological oceanography. The webinar provides advice and shares good practices with early career researchers who are planning their field research and cruise sampling.
