In September, a research icebreaker will set sail to spend a year traveling through the Arctic Ocean, including being trapped in ice close to the North Pole for the first time during the polar winter. The MOSAiC expedition aims to gather new data to unravel the mysteries of the Arctic and global climate change.
E&E News science reporter Chelsea Harvey has a rare front row seat to this expedition as one of only five journalists on board. Follow her six-week journey as she reports firsthand on project preparation by hundreds of scientists from 19 countries, Arctic organisms and clouds, the daily life at sea, and much more.
