IcePod Interview with MOSAiC School Participant

YOPP LOGO beb4effb3cAn new episode of the IcePod, the official podcast for the Year of Polar Prediction, has now been published. On this second episode, we take a further look behind the scenes of MOSAiC. The master student and professional photographer Thea Schneider was one of the lucky ones, namely one of the twenty early-career scientists who went on board the Russian icebreaker Akademik Fedorov, which supported Polarstern into the Central Arctic.

In our interview, Thea Schneider from the University of Potsdam, Germany, tells us about the difficulties of assembling a sea-ice buoy without IKEA instructions, what a smoking curl has to do with Arctic turbulences, and how lonesome you can (not) be as a vegetarian among Russian meat-eaters.
