We are planning an expedition to the Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay starting in May 2021. EXPEDITION GLACIALIS will monitor the marine mammals and wildlife visually, acoustically and with a thermal camera. We will collect micro-plastic samples and other relevant parameters as well. Our intention is to do open science in collaboration with institutions, universities and communities. We have several partners with a strong interest in collecting and sharing data in these regions and are currently are looking for specific partners related to physico-chemical parameters that we could collect.
