Do OHCs affect thyroid hormone levels in glaucous gulls (Larus hyperboreus) breeding in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard? RIS ID 5267

Sampling of the birds will take place in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, with base in Ny-Ålesund on the west coast of Spitsbergen, during June 2013, presumably five weeks. Capturing of 20-30 individuals will be carried out using trigger nest traps that will captu re the birds by its legs when it flies of...

Estimating uncertainties and sources of error in population monitoring of the Svalbard reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus)RiS : 6188

Monitoring population dynamics of wild ungulates relies on accurate estimates of population size and vital rates. However, errors in population monitoring methods can be numerous (e.g. lack of repeated measurement, sampling time period, observer bias etc .) and in most studies they are not inves...

Permafrost and sedimentary history of a high-arctic valley: Adventdalen, Spitsbergen, RiS ID: 6176

This project will develop an environmental reconstruction of the permafrost and sedimentary history of the sediments in Adventdalen. This will be determined using cryostratigraphic and sedimentary evidence obtained from a 60 m permafrost core in conjunct ion with local climate, sea level variati...

Svalbard Snow and Avalanche Science Workshop

The first basic avalanche research in Svalbard was initiated by the Norklima CYROSLOPE Svalbard research project (2006-2009), with the aim of studying the influence of particularly avalanches on traffic and infrastructure around Longyearbyen in a changing climate. This first basic avalanche rese...

Remote biosensor technology measuring valve gap and shell growth of bivalves for detecting accidental discharges in the Norwegian Arctic

The main goal of the project will be to transfer and optimize for the Arctic a remote biosensor technology developed in France to permanently record an index of water quality (based on a continuous bivalve-activity recording) and, eventually, rapidly dete ct industrial accidental discharges in th...

Workshop to develop joint future permafrost hydrology research in Svalbard

It is increasingly recognized that permafrost hydrology is an important component in the Arctic system and needs to be better understood in light of climate chanage. At the same time we now know based on IPY research that the warmest continuous permafrost in the high arctic exist in Svalbard. Co...
