I will install remote L-site stations from the Akademik Federov; install central flux tower; establish air-sea-ice flux measurement operations; monitor flux measurements. My project will study the thermodynamic and dynamic drivers of the Arctic sea-ice mass budget at MOSAiC.

Science Questions

air-ice-ocean energy fluxes; Arctic cyclones and storms; atmospheric boundary layers over sea ice

What are you most excited about the expedition?

Learning how the Arctic Ocean domain has changed since SHEBA. Major challenges for the radiation measurements will be to keep the radiometers clean from rime. There will be people interaction challenges coordinating the data collection and the subsequent data analysis to obtain a system-oriented understanding of the Arctic sea-ice environment.

What do you love most about the Arctic?

The scientific and logistic challenges it provides.
