Summary

The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory of the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) is an international, interdisciplinary initiative organized around a year-long drifting constellation of coupled system observations in the Central Arctic (2019-2020). The ultimate goal is to improve understanding of coupled atmosphere-ice-ocean-ecosystem processes in the Central Arctic to support improved sea-ice forecasting, regional weather forecasting, and climate prediction.

A MOSAiC Town Hall meeting will be held at Arctic Science Summit Week. This town hall meeting will provide a brief overview of MOSAiC and introduce the new MOSAiC Scientific Implementation Plan. This will include information on logistical support for the initiative and describe pathways for scientific involvement by the international community. An open discussion will follow. The goal for this town hall is to facilitate international coordination on science, infrastructure, logistics, and support for MOSAiC.
