Arctic Ocean 2016
The Swedish icebreaker Oden is going on a research mission to the Arctic again and during the week 23-26 some MISU people, and some others, spent climbing around on Oden in Helsingborg harbor to set up instruments and take part in a one day science workshop and - for those that actually goes on the expedition - to brush up on board safety.
Although this years project is lead by Michael Tjernström from MISU, no one from MISU is actually going on the expedition. Instead the work on board will lead by prof Ian Brooks, Leeds University, and a frequent guest at MISU, and the three other were selected as a part of an Early Career Scientist program: John Prytherch from Leeds, Anna Fitch from SMHI and Piotr Kupiszewski from ETH in Zurich. The expedition is driven by the Candian Geological Survey as part of their "Law of the Sea" work, but our group will observe surface fluxes with instruments in the foremast of Oden, as well as weather and clouds with instruments in the top deck and with radiosoundings.
