Effect of Extreme Rainfall on Soil Thermal Regime and Tundra Ecology across Landscape Gradients - RiS ID 11968

In a warming climate, precipitation across the Arctic will increase and become more variable and extreme summer rainfall events are expected to occur more frequently. There is little experimental evidence of the impacts of such rainfall extremes on Arctic ecosystems. In the intended project we wi...

Impact of heavy rainfall events on forage quality and grazing dynamics of Svalbard herbivores.

In this project we will use an experimental setup on sites with different topographic positions to simulate heavy rainfall events in the early summer. We will measure the plant and moss composition and growth as well as active herbivory. This will be done on experimental plots as well as on contr...

Sediment methane variability in Arctic lakes

This project is part of my doctoral thesis. Northern lakes represent a globally significant source of atmospheric methane, powerful greenhouse gas that is predicted to increase with the accelerated warming in the Arctic. Yet, the effect of rapid warming on the fate of natural methane emissions in...
