Arctic Cruise 2019

We are a team of of scientists and our task is to better understand how copepods – microscopic animals that are fundamental to the Arctic Ocean food web – will be affected by climate change. We will travel, collaborate, experiment, and journey to the Arctic in search of these deep-dwelling, remarkable animals.

We’ll post blogs, videos and other resources to give you the inside scoop on the work we have achieved so far, and all the science-at-sea adventures from our upcoming 2019 Arctic cruise. So, follow our online diary as we document the science behind the Changing Arctic Ocean’s DIAPOD project.
