MOSAiC taking shape!
> The Alfred Wegener Institute
has announced that it will provide the
as the drifting icebreaker for MOSAiC! This is great news for the MOSAiC research community as Polarstern is a world-class research icebreaker that will serve as an ample platform for coupled-system science.
> The U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement
Program has agreed to provide one of its Mobile Facilities (AMF2) for MOSAiC. This facility includes state-of-the-art,
ground-based atmospheric remote and in situ sensors for observing clouds, atmospheric thermodynamic and kinematic profiles,
surface fluxes, aerosol properties, and more. Read more here.
