Developing research and education collaboration across the largest climatic gradient in the Arctic between Svalbard and Northern Greenland

It is unique and important to be able to study the entire breath of the largest climatic gradient in the Arctic from cold Northern Greenland to warm Svalbard. So far, this has not been possible due mainly to logistical challenges and the remoteness of the northern Greenlandic area. With the newly...

KLIMAFORSK-Stort program klima

More than methane: quantifying melt-driven biogas production and nutrient export from Eurasian Arctic lowland permafrost

Karbonlagre i arktisk permafrost er sårbare ved klimaendring. Ny forskning har vist at økt mineralisering av karbon i jorden under oksiske forhold (som favoriserer CO2 produksjon) i stedet for under anoksiske forhold (som favoriserer CH4 produksjon), representerer de viktigste forsterkere av klim...

Hydrogeological characterization of permafrost thickness variability using a variety of geophysical tools in Adventdalen, Svalbard

This project has as the main objective to obtain a data set of permafrost thickness variability which is the main control on the permeability architecture of the sedimentary aquifer in the Adventstalen, Svalbard. To this end we will use hydrogeophysical c haracterisation techniques that have not ...

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...

Snowpack stability variation on small wind effected slopes

This project deals with wind and rugged terrain being influencing factors of snowpack stability on a small slope. If a slope is unstable, it is likely to fail as an slab avalanche, which poses a threat to skiers and mountaineers. The best way to investiga te snowpack stability and its variation o...
