COVID delayed Arctic researchers head home

UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Chris Marsay is currently onboard an icebreaker ship which, until last week, was frozen solid in the Arctic ice cap. Marsay is part of a major international research project named Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate or “MOSAiC.”

UGA Skidaway Institute scientists investigate missing carbon mystery

Until now, scientists believed the black carbon in the ocean was introduced there by rivers. However, a new paper published in Nature Communications by a collaborative group of scientists, including University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography professor Jay Brandes and graduate student Kun Ma, questions that assumption and presents researchers with a new mystery.

 

Getting ready for an Arctic expedition

Editor’s Note: UGA Skidaway Institute scientist Chris Marsay is scheduled to join an international team of scientists who will spend months on board a German ice breaker, deliberately frozen into the Arctic ice pack. Marsay and his colleagues will be studying the effects of climate change on the Arctic. Marsay won’t join the expedition untl… Read more »
