Project Summary

Theory, sampling methods, data analysis and modelling of sea-ice biogeochemistry will be the core of the school. Sea ice and snow, and their physical and optical properties, together with gas fluxes, land-sea ice-ocean interactions, and engagement with local communities will be also fundamental topics of the school. The school has the following major objectives:

  • Teaching ECSs the main characteristics and complexities of seaice, and in particular of sea-ice biogeochemistry,
  • Increasing awareness of the unique characteristics of sea ice and of its rapid changes,
  • Communicating and cooperating with local communities
