Just released! MOSAiC Distributed Network 360-degree Virtual Reality Experience

The Polarstern has always been the central base of operations for MOSAiC. But at the beginning of the expedition, researchers set up a 'distributed network' of scientific instruments and measurement stations at remote locations on the ice around the ship, in some cases up to 50 km (31 miles) away! Now you can experience first-hand what it is like to be a scientist on the ice or on the ship with this free 360-degree virtual Google Expedition. This expedition also works as a virtual reality experience using Google Cardboard and a smartphone.

Follow the Polarstern in the Fluid Earth Viewer

Fluid Earth Viewer (FEVer) is an interactive web application that allows you to visualize current and past conditions of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. Now you can find the real-time location of the Polarstern in the viewer! See what conditions are like for the current expedition participants - air temperature, ocean currents, wind, sea surface temperature, and more. Or check out what's going on in your neighborhood!
