Dear MEL Topic Readers,

German ship completes historic Arctic expedition

Floating in ice floes in the Arctic Sea sounds like a one-of-a-kind tour, if only it were just for a few days in summer. However, if you stayed there for a full year, it sounds more like confinement or quarantine rather than traveling. But that is what some researchers have done to study the Arctic climate and how it is changing on a German ship.

True, if they stayed there for a full year, they must have experienced the changing environment and gathered a considerable amount of data that would otherwise never be attained. In fact, they found that the floating ice in the Arctic Sea withdrew to the second-lowest level. They also tried to learn more about how the ocean and atmosphere are responding to global warming. Such in-the-sea research for this long period will surely complement the data gathered by the satellites, and combined, more precise and valuable data will be analyzed by scientists.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about what a-year-long research could bring about.
