Mosaic Expedition

Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) expedition is the largest expedition into the central Arctic exploring the Arctic climate system.
  • It has been designed by an international consortium of leading polar research institutions: Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), University of Colorado and Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES).
  • The MOSAiC will be the all-year-round operation of research icebreaker RV Polarstern, drifting with the natural ice across the central Arctic overwinter 2019-2020.
  • The MOSAiC expedition will take the closest look ever at the Arctic as the epi centre of global warming.
  • Its goal is to gain fundamental insights that are key to better understand global climate change.
  • The data gathered will be used by scientists around the globe for better research and understanding climate.
  • The dramatic changes in the Arctic climate system and the fast retreat of Arctic sea ice are strongly affecting global climate and the inability of modern climate models to reproduce Arctic climate change is one of the most pressing problems in understanding and predicting global climate change.
  • The expedition will enhance the understanding of the regional and global consequences of Arctic climate change and sea-ice loss and improve weather and climate predictions.
