Hiab in the Arctic

Hiab stories | 8 july 2020 6:35 AM

Hiab’s equipment is built to perform regardless of temperatures or conditions — even the Arctic where a HIAB X-HiDuo 108 E-4 currently is part of the MOSAiC expedition. 

In September, 2019, the German research icebreaker Polarstern set sail from Tromsø, Norway, to spend a year drifting through the Arctic Ocean - trapped in ice. It is inspired by the Norwegian researcher and explorer Fridtjof Nansen who set sail on the first ever drift expedition with his wooden sailing ship Fram 127 years ago.

The goal of the MOSAiC (Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate) expedition is to study the Arctic as the epicenter of global warming and to gain fundamental insights that are key to better understand global climate change. Hundreds of researchers from 20 countries are involved in this exceptional endeavour.

Led by atmospheric scientist Markus Rex, and co-led by Klaus Dethloff and Matthew Shupe, MOSAiC is spearheaded by Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI).

The data gathered will be used by scientists around the globe to take climate research to a completely new level.
