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.
The final program of the 4th T-MOSAiC workshop is now online at the workshop section of our website. The workshop will take place at the Northern Arctic Federal University Main Building in Arkhangelsk on May 25th (14h-15:30h), during the Arctic Science Summit Week 2019.
João Canário, T-MOSAiC chair, presented T-MOSAiC at the "Polar research and Europe: new challenges and opportunities" symposium that took place in Lisbon during the EU-PolarNet, and European Polar Board meetings. Besides T-MOSAiC presentation, the EU Polar Research Strategy: Actions and Objectives and the EU-PolarNet’s strategic research planning efforts was also presented and discussed. This event was integrated in Jornadas PERIN, “Portugal in Europe Research and Innovation Network”
The 4th T-MOSAiC Workshop will take place on the afternoon of May 25th at the Northern (Arctic) Federal University and Northern State Medical University in Arkhangelsk, Russia, during the Arctic Science Summit Week 2019. In this open session, several presentations are scheduled concerning the implementation plan of the project. The final program will be posted soon on the workshop page.
T-MOSAiC and APECS are pleased to announce the availability of partial travel support for early career researchers to attend the 4rd T-MOSAiC workshop on 26 May 2019 during the ASSW2019 in Arkhangelsk, Russia. The funding is provided by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). Interested candidates should contact APECS for submission instructions. The call will be open until February 28th.
Ivan Alekseev from Russia is the 2nd early career researcher member of the T-MOSAiC EXCOM. Ivan is a PhD student from the Saint Petersburg State University and his work is focus on the study of the stability and biodegradability of soil organic matter in Arctic soils. The selection process was carried out by APECS with the direct involvement of Scott Zolkos, also ECR member of the T-MOSAiC EXCOM. Welcome Ivan !!
