From August to September 2021, the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat conducts the expedition Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) with the Swedish icebreaker Oden.
Researchers interested in the ARTofMELT 2023 expedition with the icebreaker Oden have the opportunity to participate in a digital workshop 9–10 November 2021. The expedition is centred on atmospheric rivers (AR’s), intrusions of warm air into the Arctic, and their role for the onset of summer sea-ice melt.
Marcel du Plessis works as a postdoc in Physical Oceanography at the University of Gothenburg. In December, he and three colleagues will travel with the South African icebreaker S.A. Agulhas II to the Weddell Sea which is part of the Antarctic Ocean.
