The CHARTER kick off meeting is now 3 weeks behind us and since then we have been busy updating the website and several CHARTER folks have been participating in the European Polar Science Week, a virtual event which has been running all last week. You can watch replays of the entire virtual event here, and track it on social media at at #EO4Polar.
Participants included CHARTER project leader Bruce Forbes, Sari Stark (Work Package 2), Annett Bartsch (Work Package 1), Julienne Stroeve (Work Package 1 & 5) and CHARTER Advisory Group member Annett Löf.
We have added two new video interviews this week to our video gallery, one with Work Package 3 leader Professor Otto Habeck of the University of Hamburg and another with Post Doc Jakob Assmann, who will be working in Work Package 4 under Dr. Marc Macias-Fauria at the University of Oxford and Professor Signe Normand of the University of Århus.
As to the project launch meeting, it was very exciting for us all to meet our project colleagues, albeit virtually, but connections were made, brains were tested and we can only hope that next year we will be able to slowly start more in person meetings and get on with our field work.
