Field work always goes by so fast! My time aboard the R/V Akademik Fedorov flew by and came to an end when we docked in Tromsø on October 28. I’m still processing everything I learned and experienced. I had so many firsts on this adventure… first cruise on an icebreaker, first experience with polar night, first time seeing the aurora (besides faint wisps in Northern Minnesota), and first time coding in python!
My fellow MOSAiC Ambassador, Mauro Hermann, made an infographic to show some other stats from the first MOSAiC support cruise (Leg 1a).
Anyone care to guess how many of the 4,000L of soup consumed were borscht?!
