On our second episode we take a further look behind the scenes of MOSAiC. The master student and professional photographer Thea Schneider was one of the lucky ones, namely one of the twenty early career scientists who went on board the Russian icebreaker Akademik Fedorov, which supported Polarstern in the Central Arctic.In our interview, Thea tells us about the difficulties of assembling a sea-ice buoy without IKEA instructions, what a smoking curl has to do with Arctic turbulences, and how lonesome you can (not) be as a vegetarian among Russian meat-eaters.How does a photographer look at the Arctic, and how does a physicist? - Both are very creative, and with Thea, everything comes together. Because at heart, she is a theoretical physicist: she loves equations; through physics she found a way to make her photography more complete.And, if you are looking for a PhD student who likes modelling and at the same time enjoys field work in the Arctic, maybe Thea is the choice...If you miss the music, find the very special playlist by Thea on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7453NmXDDuQDHVCKeFZDRw?si=CgoSqJZeS5ayTcHkwXz0wAIf you want to listen to the full episode with music, check back with us: polarprediction@gmail.comFor updates and other materials, check also our website: https://theicepodcast.home.blog/Arctic Drift Audiologbuch (in German): https://open.spotify.com/show/2f321wQiWNhIpGdi57aoRr?si=h9pA2a8BRJS4Xh-xQSM63AThe IcePod is the podcast about polar science and the people.

Because it's Christmas, we like to give to all of you a special gift that you can enjoy during the holiday season. In this bonus episode, the sea-ice scientist Stefanie Arndt shares with us how she's preparing for her departure to join the MOSAiC ice camp end of January. Steffi has been involved in the Year of Polar Prediction for a long time deploying sea-ice buoys in the Antarctic. Now she's going to the other side of the world to measure snow and sea-ice conditions in the central Arctic during Leg 3 of the MOSAiC campaign. Hear about how she prepares as a polar bear guard and sort of a firefighter on the ice and why her parents would rather want her to be the "weather guy" on TV than spending more than a year in total in the polar regions. Leg 3 will be the coldest period of the expedition, and Steffi has particular preparation for that (not only her woollen underwear). But the sun is coming back at some point...And by the way: if you miss the music, find our very special Christmas playlist on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3rI1ESnSZB8yO0YTiAylHZ?si=9maPQz2hQf-zeyFj3wVM5AIf you want to listen to the full episode with music, check back with us: polarprediction@gmail.comFor updates and other materials, check also our website: https://theicepodcast.home.blog/Links to other podcasts: Arctic Drift Audiologbuch (in German): https://open.spotify.com/show/2f321wQiWNhIpGdi57aoRr?si=h9pA2a8BRJS4Xh-xQSM63ATreibholz (also in German): https://open.spotify.com/show/71J1rtJW70grknSw3aP2u2?si=uW7jYbTnQ6myJnWfP8-NiQThe IcePod is the podcast about polar science and the people.

Here is the first episode!In an interview with us, climate scientist Thomas Rackow talks about his duties as a YOPP modelling lecturer for the MOSAiC school aboard the Russian research icebreaker Akademik Fedorov that accompanied Polarstern on her transit into the central Arctic sea ice in September and October 2019. It's all about first times: not only Rabe Socke went to the Arctic for the first time, but also Thomas had his first glimpse of northern lights, and got the polar virus. How is it to put your first step on Arctic sea ice and at the same time becoming a VIP by carrying a walkie-talkie around? Thanks to T-Racks, everyone on board Akademik Fedorov is able now to predict where the sea ice goes and sing along with Thomas on his ukulele.And by the way: if you miss the music, find the very special playlist by Thomas on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1TvucfsBWJ3VrJtOukAsQF?si=GoFc5_XVTNm8HiLPOjF3ggIf you want to listen to the full episode with music, check back with us: polarprediction@gmail.comFor updates and other materials, check also our website: https://theicepodcast.home.blog/Arctic Drift Audiologbuch (in German): https://open.spotify.com/show/2f321wQiWNhIpGdi57aoRr?si=h9pA2a8BRJS4Xh-xQSM63ACuriously Polar: https://open.spotify.com/show/0HqZdOUwP78cF8em0nQ9Rp?si=zXBuvoCATae7HGWrBpuudQThe IcePod is the podcast about polar science and the people.

In the second trailer of the IcePod we talk to the mathematician and climate scientist Thomas Rackow. Thomas joins the organizing team of the MOSAiC School as a lecturer on climate and sea-ice modelling. About twenty early career scientist were lucky to be chosen to participate in the MOSAiC School that takes place aboard the Russian icebreaker Akademik Fedorov. The Fedorov supports the German research icebreaker Polarstern on her transit into the central Arctic. Once arrived in the Arctic, Thomas Rackow and the MOSAiC School participants will help the various MOSAiC teams to set up a Distributed Regional Network of observational sites within an area of up to ~50 km distance around RV Polarstern frozen into the ice. When Thomas Rackow is back from the central Arctic, we are going to meet him in the studio of RadioWeser.TV for a full interview. So stay tuned for our first episode of the IcePod, coming in November! The IcePod is the podcast about polar science and the people.
