Floating university PS93.1

On July 18th 2015, 20 ArcTrain students were headed back home after completing a unique scientific training called "The Floating University" that focused on core sampling techniques at sea, physical and biochemical data collecting pratices, and analysis methodes for paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic proxies. This 3 weeks training was part of the Polarstern Expedition PS93-1 which main goal was to investigate the variability of key environmental parameters in the Fram Strait during warm periods (interglacials) of the geological and historical past.
