SAS Webinar - Reporting from this Fall's Arctic Expeditions
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 19 November 2020
Where: Online: 5:00-7:00 am AKST, 9:00-11:00 am EST
The Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) completed four cruises this fall in the Western Arctic Ocean, where the latest one with R/V Mirai just arrived back in Shimizu (Japan) from the Canada Basin.
On this occasion, we would like to invite you to join the SAS November Webinar where representatives from each cruise will report back from the expeditions. Much changed because of the pandemic, but most cruises still carried out their sampling program and collected physical, chemical, and biological measurements that will become part of SAS’s pan-arctic dataset.
In addition to the cruise reports, there will be an update on “ARCTIC CENTURY”, the Russian/Swiss/German contribution to SAS 2021 that will sample across the Kara Sea with the icebreaker Akademik Tryoshnikov. We will also see some highlights from the recent yearlong MOSAiC cruise.
There will be time for questions and discussion after the last talk.
The Webinar will take place in GoToMeeting. Please email anne.meisingset [at] uib.no to get the meeting ID and password.
