Sam has been working on podcasts of c. 3 minutes long, each focused on a specific question about MOSAiC, or working in the Arctic. Examples include: How is MOSAiC being conducted? Why do we need more observations in the Arctic? The questions are answered by scientists onboard, their voices woven together.

The MOSAiC Mixdowns are now available on Apple Podcast and Spotify!
