On Monday, October 12, 2020, the German Research Vessel Polarstern sailed back into its homeport after completing a remarkable expedition to the Arctic Ocean. This day marked the end of the fieldwork portion of the 2019-2020 MOSAiC expedition in which hundreds of scientists from around the world spent a year in the Arctic gathering important climate datasets.
Now a Virtual Reality tour has been created to celebrate this unprecedented expedition. Immerse yourself and your students in the Arctic with the tour of the MOSAiC ice camp. The tour was largely developed by Jason Cervenec's team at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center and has been added to their virtual reality tours page here https://byrd.osu.edu/educator/lessons/virtualice
The virtual reality tour can be found at https://virtualice.byrd.osu.edu/mosaic-dev/
