Role / Position
research scientist/team leader of BGC on leg 3

My tasks on MOSAiC
PI of the DMS team and responsible for mass spectrometric analyses of DMS
My biggest challenge
The biggest challenge will be when the drift plan will not work out as planned or the sampling scheme is not achieved and the group needs to adjust to the new situation and deal with disappointments.
I am most excited about
The collaboration with so many colleagues, working with the same goal in mind and gathering so many different aspects of the system at the same time. As participant of leg 3, I hope to experience the transition from winter to spring, which will also be very exiting. Hopefully our instruments will be able to pick-up the start of biological activity.
