Marine Research Scientist
My tasks on MOSAiC
I am a member of the zooplankton group on the Ecosystem team. I will be responsible for collecting zooplankton samples and conducting experiments for the various core and project measurements. I will also assist with other ice and water column sampling to support the Ecosystem team measurements.
My biggest challenge
The major challenge will most likely be maintaining a hole in the ice to allow for water column sampling throughout the entire expedition.
I am most excited about
I am excited about getting a chance to return to an Arctic ice camp and repeat measurements that we made at the SHEBA ice camp 20 years ago.
