The European Commission and the European External Action Service unveiled the new EU policy for the Arctic.
The funding agreement of the The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) International Directorate with Alfred Wegener Institute is coming to an end in January 2022. While APECS will continue to have a project office at AWI Potsdam as as a hub for their numerous partnerships in EU Projects, they are currently looking for a new host for their international directorate.
This new study by Justine Ramage et al. is the first demographic study assessing the population living on permafrost and the impact of permafrost thaw on the population living in the Arctic Circumpolar Permafrost Region (ACPR)
You can now download the new permafrost extent map as a foldable Dymaxion map.
Arctic regions are currently undergoing unprecedented climatic and socio-environmental changes. Both scientific research and the observations and knowledge of Arctic residents provide detailed information about the multiplicity of transformations.
New Updates from the Lena River despite the global pandemic.
New story about Nunataryuk´s communication and dissemination efforts. "These cartoons add the cool factor to permafrost science - A multimedia science communication project combines art, game-playing, and augmented reality"
Once released, organic carbon can be degraded and emitted as greenhouse gas to the atmosphere, or it can be stored away in marine sediments.
New paper! AOM acts as an efficient barrier for upward migrating dissolved methane in East Siberian Arctic Shelf sediments.
The ongoing pandemic challenges global societies. Nunataryuk scientists of the UNIVE have been analysing and modelling the COVID-19 outbreak and spreading trends in Italy. They have used similar epidemiological models for a study within Nunataryuk to predict anthrax disease in Arctic regions.
New Paper! Arctic river monitoring is necessary to observe changes in the mobilization of dissolved organic matter (DOM) from permafrost. The Lena River is the second largest Arctic river and 71% of its catchment is continuous permafrost..
New modelling study: northern peatlands on average will continue to function as carbon sinks in different climate scenarios, but their sink capacity would be substantially reduced under a high warming scenario after 2050.
The APECS-Nunataryuk-T-MOSAiC School had to be CANCELLED due to the current COVID-19 situation worldwide and the uncertainty that comes with it for global travel in the coming months.
A new map, produced as part of the Nunataryuk project, gives an updated picture of the extent of permafrost in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions, both on land and offshore.
The Terrestrial Multidisciplinary distributed Observatories for the Study of Arctic Connections (T-MOSAiC) Special Issue of the journal ‘Arctic Science’ is now open for submissions. Deadline for submissions is 31 March 2021.
Michael Fritz from AWI in Potsdam opened the exhibition for the German Permafrost Comics on 12 December in the Potsdam Science Forum. For his engagement he has won the Potsdam Price for Science Communication 2019.
The UN Climate Change Conference COP25 is currently taking place in Madrid Spain. The Cryosphere Pavilion will host a series of side event at COP25, including the Parmafrost Day today, December 5. Live stream from the event is available.
In connection with the Greenland Science Week in Nuuk 1-5 December 2019, DTU, ASIAQ and Pinngortitaleriffik/ Greenland’s Nature Institut are hosting a workshop on foundations and construction practices in permafrost areas. The workshop will take place on December 3 between 8-12.
Nunataryuk researchers from WPs 1, 3 & 6 participated in ITCH 2019 - It's The Cryogrid Hackathon outside of Potsdam, Germany, where users and programmers of the CryoGrid permafrost model gathered for an intense workshop of coding and programming.
Potentially large amounts of carbon dioxide are being produced by eroding permafrost coastlines in the Arctic, according to a new Nunataryuk paper published in Geophysical Research Letters.
