Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

MOSAiC School 72dpi RGBmosaic logo Auswahl 2 rgb 08The MOSAiC School 2019 was a 6-week training course organized by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and the Alfred-Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), with support from the Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium (ARICE), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), as well as the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) and the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). The school was organized from 16 September to 28 October 2019 as part of the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) expedition on the Russian icebreaking research vessel Akademik Fedorov operated by the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI).

Programme

MOSAiC School PhasesThe aim of the MOSAiC School was to: 

  • Train and educate the next generation of Arctic system science experts
  • Provide support to the MOSAiC teams and
  • Communicate the newly gained knowledge experience through MOSAiC Ambassadors’ projects

In practical, the MOSAiC School 2019 was organized in four parts (phase 0 - 3 in the graph):
