The forth stage of OCEAN CHANGE
Arved Fuchs and his crew are setting off on the “Dagmar Aaen” from Kiel in the middle of June, 2021. This is a continuation of the current OCEAN CHANGE Expedition series. The project will be subject to the Corona rules of conduct.
Global warming is causing the conditions of a complex and fragile system to change. The expedition series OCEAN CHANGE has the goal to track and document such changes and their effects and make these understandable and perceptible for the general public. What are the effects of a weakening North Atlantic current on countries, people and on marine plants and animal life? What are the effects on weather patterns?
Arved Fuchs and his crew on board the sailing vessel the “Dagmar Aaen” will pursue the answers to these questions. Setting off in Germany, the ship will cross the North Atlantic to Iceland, then to the east coast of Greenland, south around Cape Farewell and on to the coast of Baffin Island and Labrador.
The expedition will then continue in the following year and is planned to return in the fall of 2022. An attempt will be made to reach both a medially and scientifically oriented public and take them on board. Live access to navigational data and readings, as well as cameras, will allow the public to virtually witness the situation on board.
A blend of information and real-time analysis will establish a context of the environment. The scientific expertise on the part of GEOMAR (Kiel) will convey natural phenomena and background knowledge live from the ship. The progress of the expedition and the occurrences on board will be summarized in weekly podcasts.
