It is only some weeks left until the large research cruise SWERUS-C3 will head into the Arctic Ocean to investigate the linkages between Climate, Cryosphere and Carbon release from the sediment, with addition of greenhouse gases (GHG) to the atmosphere. But before that, there is a lot of preparation to be done.

Last week, scientists from MISU participated in the mobilisation in Helsingborg, building the instruments and making sure that everything works.
