It 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).

Polarstern

Research Vessel (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.

During the first leg of the expedition, the MOSAiC partners and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) work together to offer the MOSAiC School 2019 on board of the support icebreaker RV Akademik Fedorov.

Duration of the MOSAiC School 2019:  15 September - 26 October 2019 (plus / minus a few days (as logistical or weather conditions may require changes of travel dates)

Port of exit and entry:  Tromsø, Norway

The MOSAiC School 2019 is organized for 20 early career researchers (advanced graduate students and PhD students with no to limited experience with ship-based research) (see the list of candidates below).

International experts that are part of the expedition will share knowledge with the students, engage in discussions and hands-on experiences in groundbreaking research, and thus help to educate future Arctic climate experts. In addition, the participants will help the MOSAiC Teams on site to set up their instruments and experiments.

After the end of the MOSAiC School the participants will have to:

  • serve as MOSAiC “ambassadors” by reporting back to their country and institutes
  • Report to APECS and the MOSAiC organizers
