GMOS Train ESR Sonja Gindorf from Stockholm University received the Outstanding Poster Award 2024 at the Arctic Frontiers Conference Actions & Reactions in Tromsø, Norway, last week. The award is given by Arctic Frontiers and APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists). Sonja’s poster entitled “Arctic Ecosystem Mercury Speciation and Distribution North of Svalbard during the NPI Arctic Ocean II Expedition” illustrated the mercury work Sonja carried out during an Arctic Ocean expedition in August 2023.

The Norwegian Polar Institute, the Arctic Council, and AMAP organized and funded the cruise. Sonja took part in the cruise based on an application through the Swedish Polar Secretariat.
