MOSAiC Final Implementation Workshop 

Where: Postdam (Germany) | When: 11-15 March, 2019

A MOSAiC implementation workshop will take place from March 11th to 15th 2019 at AWI in Potsdam, Germany. The workshop is the last big meeting before the MOSAiC expedition will start in September 2019 and therefore, focuses on the implementation of the expedition. The workshop will be a major step in further planning MOSAiC logistically. The agenda will include all aspects of logistics, experimental highlights, data management, teams (atmosphere, sea ice, ocean, biogeochemistry, ecosystem, remote sensing, aircraft) breakout sessions, cross-cutting implementation, media and outreach. In addition, the meeting will start with a modeling day, which aims to update and coordinate MOSAiC-related modeling activities, both among modelers and with observationalists. On the one hand, this will cover the model-data connection with respect to weather, sea-ice and coupled forecast and data assimilation. Otherwise, the topic bridging the observations with process modeling and the link to larger-scale models is on the agenda. Potential plans for coordinated forecast verification and model evaluation will be discussed.
For questions, please contact Dr. Anja Sommerfeld from the MOSAiC Coordination Office ()

More information on the workshop including session topics will be find at MOSAiC website


The 2019 GRC on Polar Marine Science

Where: - Castelvecchio Pascoli (Italy) I When: 16 - 17 March, 2019

The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science provides early career scientists with a unique opportunity to further enhance their Gordon Conference experience. The goal of this conference is to bring together graduate students and postdocs within all fields of polar marine science, including marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and technology to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations. We especially encourage contributions that demonstrate interdisciplinary research approaches within and linking across the domains of atmosphere, sea ice, ocean, and benthos, including links to ice shelves, coasts, and human interactions.
