December 5-working in the cold December 5, 2019 - MOSAIC MOSAiC: Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate Contact us! MOSAiC BLOG By Rob Rember and Marc Oggier, International Arctic Research Center sea ice scientists  What is MOSAiC? Expand   MOSAiC is the world’s largest and most comprehensive expedition to the central Arctic Ocean. Five UAF researchers will take part, embarking on multiple legs of a year-long journey onboard icebreaker RV Polarstern locked in the frozen sea ice and set to drift past the north pole. The unprecedented Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate will capture the closest look ever at the Arctic to understand why…
