Some pictures have been taken by Ignacio Pisso during the summer measuring campaign. You can find them HERE.

       MOCA will combine land-, ship- and aircraft-based measurements in coordinated measurement campaigns to improve the description of the current environmental state of MH in the Svalbard region. Measurement and modelling activities will quantify the present-day CH4 emissions from marine seep sites west of Prince Carl Forland to the atmosphere, and will identify the main influences on the atmospheric fraction.
    
The detailed observation and process-based campaign data will be up-scaled spatially over the Arctic region using the FLEXPART atmospheric transport model.  Emissions maps will be generated for the present day and for future time periods to generate CH4 emission estimates from MH in a warming Arctic Ocean.
     Radiative forcing (direct and indirect effects) and climate impact from MH-based CH4 emissions will be calculated under present-day atmospheric composition and realistic future temperature scenarios using OsloCTM3 model. The potential of the biogeochemical cycle as a strong feedback mechanism will also be investigated.
