Seed Project 2020: FROST

Responsible:

Daniel Kramer, G.R.I.M.P.,University of Sherbrooke

Marius Jonassen, The University Centre in Svalbard

In the Seed Project FROST the resulting learning material consists of

  1. Virtual field guides from selected sites in Svalbard and
  2. Instructional videos for handling of meteorological and oceanographic instruments.

The resulting material is relevant for several UNIS geophysics courses that conduct field work at these sites and or use this type of instrumentation, but it is also relevant to the iEarth mainland partners and institutions beyond.

During the project, the students take an active part in both planning and execution of 1-2 weeks field work. This field work is arranged in the form of scientific cruises and field campaigns targeting different meteorological, oceanographical and glaciological themes and processes that the students subsequently write reports on.

ABSTRACT of the Seed Project FROST:

The material is divided into two main parts, Virtual Field Trips (VFTs) and instructional videos. The goal of the VFTs is to familiarise the fieldwork participants (FPs) with the fieldwork area before going outside. VFTs consist of 360° pictures and Digital Surface Models (DSMs). The former shows the area as-is (reality) and the DSMs allows the user to move around virtually. The instructional videos explain in detail the instruments used during fieldwork. In the videos, we discuss the purpose of the instruments, how they work and the steps to deploy, maintain, and recover them. This allows fieldwork participants to prepare at their own pace.

For more information on:

  • how they produced the virtual field trips
  • how to create an instructional video for an instrument
