Thin ice studies in the Arctic: N-ICE2015 http://www.framshorts.com/video/thin-ice-studies-in-the-arctic-n-ice2015/ Thu, 28 May 2015 10:30:56 +0000 http://www.framshorts.com/?post_type=video&p=646 The research vessel Lance was frozen into the Arctic ice pack in the midst of the polar night in January 2015, under the auspices of Norwegian Polar Institute led project N-ICE2015 to study the effects and feedbacks of the thinning of Arctic sea ice. For 6 months the ship will serve as platform for about a hundred scientists from more than ten nations studying the interaction of the atmosphere, ice, ocean and marine ecosystem, to help us understand future changes better.
