VR Expedition: MOSAiC Distributed Network

VR Expedition: MOSAiC Distributed Network

The MOSAiC expedition aims to better understand the changing Arctic climate system by studying atmosphere, ice, and ocean processes. At the heart of the MOSAiC expedition is the German Icebreaker, Polarstern, which was transformed into a drifting climate observatory for an entire year. Scientists aboard the support vessel, Fedorov, developed instruments up to 50 km away from the Polarstern as part of this "distributed network" to study the system at both a local and regional scale.
