Modelling organic pollutants in permafrost soils

Persistant Organic Pollutans (POPs) are toxic chemicals that adversely affect human health and the environment. They persist for long periods of time in the environment and can accumulate and pass from one species to the next through the food chain. Understanding the factors that determine change...

Effects of Reindeer Carcasses on Tundra Ecosystem - Modelling spatial distribution of reindeer cadavers in the Arctic tundra (RiS ID 11512)

The main goal of this project is to model the spatial distribution of reindeer cadavers in the arctic tundra. The effects of reindeer cadavers can be long lasting in the nutrient poor arctic ecosystem. However, the spatial distribution of these cadavers is not random, which means that these cadav...

Mercury dynamics in Svalbard terrestrial ecosystems, RiS ID 11828.

Frozen Arctic soils have been found to store large amounts of mercury (Hg), a highly toxic metal. As the permafrost is thawing due to climate change, it is suggested that this mercury could release from the soil, potentially becoming available to the terrestrial food web. Methylated mercury (MeHg...
