Discover why hundreds of scientists from around the world froze a ship in Arctic sea ice–braving subzero temperatures and months of polar darkness–in Frozen in the Ice: Exploring the Arctic.

In this online science course, you will learn from MOSAiC (Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate) scientists and Arctic experts about how this expedition will increase our understanding of the Arctic and global climate systems and the kinds of data they are working to collect on the ice, under the sea, and in the air.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Explore all components of the Arctic climate system and how they are interconnected as a virtual participant of the MOSAic expedition
  • Explore what climate science is, what data scientists collect in the Arctic, and how their findings inform our understanding of weather and climate
  • Discuss the critical challenges the Arctic faces under a changing climate and how these changes impact our lives in the mid-latitudes
