"X-ray microtomograpy of Arctic Sea ice cores from the MOSAiC expedition: Can synchrotron-based imaging improve climate modeling?" Prof. Sonke Maus & al. 

Abstract
As a member of the ice team of the MOSAiC expedition (Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate), the largest central Arctic expedition ever, Prof. Sonke Maus has been coordinating the micro-tomographic imaging activities of MOSAiC sea ice cores. Prof. Sonke Maus is coordinating an upcoming experiment (Jan 2024) at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, to scan sea ice cores from MOSAiC. For the first time full (10 cm x 100-200 cm) cores will be imaged at reasonably high resolution (~10 micron) to provide a unique 3D microtomographic dataset for the study of sea ice properties in the climate system
