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.

The icebreaker Oden will conduct an expedition in the North Atlantic part of the ice-covered Arctic Ocean during the period early/mid-May to mid/late June 2023. The planning is based on using specialized weather forecasts to predict the position for an upcoming AR with a couple of days notice, whereupon IB Oden can go there.

The workshop is aimed at:

  • Researchers who are interested in participating on board I / B Oden, or researchers connected to projects on board
  • Research and logistics financiers
  • Other stakeholders

All participating projects must be able to adapt to the expedition's basic plan.

The purpose of the workshop is to:

Identify potential contributions and collaborative efforts within the ARTofMELT concept (for a more detailed description, see pdf below). Additionally we want to clarify logistical limitations and already now identify, if possible, logistical challenges and also discuss funding options.
