call for proposals GreenLAnd Circumnavigation Expedition (GLACE)
We are excited to announce that the call for proposals for our latest project, the GreenLAnd Circumnavigation Expedition (GLACE), is now open.
The expedition will offer an unprecedented complete circumnavigation of Greenland in a single expedition over a 2-month period in August and September 2019, providing access to the remote and critically understudied Northern Greenland area.
The R/VAkademic Tryoshnikov(AARI, St Petersburg) will be available for the expedition after a partial refit. During the Northern Greenland section of the expedition, theAkademic Tryoshnikovwill be escorted by the nuclear icebreaker50 Let Pobedy.
The science framework of GLACE will entail four topics:Ocean, Atmosphere, Cryosphere, and Terrestrial. Collaboration between these topics, and interdisciplinary research towards a holistic view of the region, are particularly encouraged.
