The EU Horizon2020-funded project Nunataryukin cooperation with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), both T-MOSAiC partners and our program are organizing the Nunataryuk-APECS-T-MOSAiC School 2020 on the topic of “Arctic Coastal Adaptation - Capacity building and knowledge exchange across borders” at Abisko Scientific Research Station (Abisko, Sweden) from 21 - 30 April 2020. More informations and the application form can be found here.
Prof. Warwick Vincent, T-MOSAiC Co-Chair, was interviewed by Radio Canada International this week. He had the opportunity to present our program and discuss some of the major goals of the project. The full interview can be accessed here.
Diogo Folhas, T-MOSAiC Executive Secretary, presented T-MOSAiC Implementation Plan (Action Groups) at the INTERACT Station Managers meeting in Vindeln, Sweden. The participation of T-MOSAiC aimed to invite station managers to collaborate with the program in data and sample collection and management during 2020. T-MOSAiC is very gratefull for the positive feedback received and for the future plans concerning T-MOSAiC Implementation.
João Canário, T-MOSAiC chair, presented very briefly the T-MOSAiC program at the Polar Session of the 14th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant in Krakow, Poland. The presentation included a very short description of T-MOSAiC goals and implementation and ended with the invitation to our mercury colleagues to collaborate with the related Action Groups.
A Sentinel North sponsored T-MOSAiC workshop on Arctic Microbiomes and Land-Water Processes took place last August 28th in Quebec City, Canada. Around 30 researchers at the meeting and another 20 online through Zoom discussed their work, how it relates to the respective AGs and how they can contribute to the scientific goals of T-MOSAiC. The organisers would like to acknowledge all of the participants for their contributions. The summary of all presentation can be downloaded on the Workshops Webpage.
The 5th T-MOSAiC workshop on Arctic Microbiomes and Arctic Freshwater Processes will be held on August 28th in Quebec City (Canada) during the Sentinel North Annual Meeting. This workshop is the first T-MOSAiC implementation scientific activity and involves three Action Groups: Arctic Microbiomes, Land-Water Processes and Northern Community Issues. More information about this workshop including the Final Program can be accessed in the Workshops webpage.
The planning of T-MOSAiC has developed through a series of international workshops sponsored by IASC. The Implementation Phase of T-MOSAiC is the establishment of Action Groups (TMAGS) focused on specific questions and outputs within the Science Plan framework. TMAGS are formally established through the Executive Committee of T-MOSAiC in response to specific suggestions and requests from the Steering Committee and other interested parties. More information about the the T-MOSAiC Implementation and TMAGs is now available here.
A T-MOSAiC article was published this week in the AGU "Earth and Space Sciences News" journal (EoS). The article describes the main goals of T-MOSAiC program and highlights the discussions and conclusions of the 4th T-MOSAiC workshop held last May in Arkhangelsk. The full article can be accessed here.
The presentations of the 4th T-MOSAiC workshop held during the ASSW2019 are now available at the workshop page on our website. The T-MOSAiC team acknowledge the excellent contributions from the presenters to the discussions concerning the program science and implementation plan.
T-MOSAiC team had a very busy week during the ASSW2019. Nine presentations were performed by the chairs and the secretariat and very good positive feedbacks and suggestions were received by the Arctic community. During the ASSW2019 a T-MOSAiC open session took place with scientific presentations followed by interesting discussions. The highlight of the week were the presentation of the T-MOSAiC implementation plan that is focused in Action Groups leaded by international scientific experts. News about this plan will soon be available on the website. The T-MOSAiC is very thankful for all presenters in the open and close meetings of the program.
