MOSAiC: A Year on Ice (Research & Innovation Week)

Research & Innovation Week 2020

From September 2019 to October 2020, the German icebreaker Polarstern was embedded within the Arctic sea ice and drifted for 12 months. Hundreds of scientists from around the world spent months aboard, in shifts, studying the complete Arctic climate “system,” including the ocean below, sea ice and the atmosphere above. CU Boulder scientists played leading roles in the mission, dubbed MOSAiC for Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate.

At this virtual event, you’ll hear from:

  • Expedition co-coordinator and lead atmospheric scientist Matthew Shupe
  • Two educators who worked with dozens of MOSAiC scientists to bring their insights to students
  • A videography team who captured mission moments in 360 degrees, creating planetarium shows that will be viewed around the world

On this Zoom-based panel, view spectacular images and video footage from the mission, and engage with speakers after their remarks.

Panelists will take live questions from the audience.

Wednesday, October 14 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm
