Science / project plan

NoTAC is an international collaboration focused on developing dissolved organic matter (DOM) as a tracer for Arctic water entering the Atlantic and exploring links between water mass origin and phytoplankton community composition. The project will combine established tracer measurements with state-of-the art in situ sensor-based monitoring techniques to expand on existing techniques for tracing water mass origin in a major Arctic gateway, the Fram Strait.

The project funds ship-time and logistics for two crusies in the Fram Strait in 2020 and 2021.
