To Singapore for the Arctic
The Advancing Knowledge of Methane in the Arctic (AKMA) project is a collaborative research project between UiT – The Arctic University of Norway and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in the US. The project focuses on methane activity in Arctic regions, and gathers scientists and students from around the world, including the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS). From 29th April to 10th May, the Norwegian state-of-the-art Research Vessel Kronprins Haakon will sail from Tromsø out on the Barents Sea with a scientific team of over 30 people and additional ship crew. The Norwegian Embassy in Singapore invited Professor Benjamin Horton, Professor Andrea Marinoni, Yan Yu Ting and Toh Yun Fann to hear more about their climate change research and research expedition in the Barents Sea.
