Embark on the largest polar expedition in history: in September 2019, the German research icebreaker Polarstern has set sail from Tromsø, Norway, to spend a year drifting through the Arctic Ocean - trapped in ice. The goal of the MOSAiC expedition is to take the closest look ever at the Arctic as the epicenter of global warming and to gain. Some instruments on the MOSAiC ice floe will continue recording autonomously until Polarstern returns, while others will be dismantled, explains the AWI. The project leaders may also use the Polarstern 's departure from the ice as an opportunity to relocate the ice camp closer to the North Pole. This possibility has always been part of the.
