Frost Flowers – Arctic Ocean
the project in short(+)
This activity is all about new discoveries in the natural environment as we further our goals of understanding the extreme forms of microbial life in the Arctic, and how this may be applied to the origin of life here on Earth, as well as looking for life on other moons and planets.
Foster research that will advance the frontiers of knowledge, emphasizing areas of greatest opportunity and potential benefit and establishing the Nation as a global leader in fundamental transformational science and engineering.
This activity is being conducted by one of our IGERT Trainees and will be the main part of his PhD thesis, and thus it contributes to the nation’s science workforce.
Build the Nation’s research capability through critical investments in advanced instrumentation, facilities, cyber infrastructure, and experimental tools.
