Role / Position
PI of MOSAiC balloon sounding program; Senior Scientist
My tasks on MOSAiC
I'm responsible for the coordination of the upper-air balloon sounding program (radiosondes, ozone sondes, ...) as well as for the small tethered balloon platform on the ice.
I am most excited about
It's a unique opportunity to collect data in the Central Arctic, and even throughout all seasons. But not just "my" data - it's fantastic that scientists from different countries and different scientific areas really act together to jointly work on interfacial topics.
