Catching the „Arctic Fever“

It is quite a while since we returned from our expedition, but every morning after waking up I still hope for a brief moment to be back there.

Are you the artist we are looking for ?

Grid Arendal is looking for a talented young artist that has first-hand experience from living on Arctic permafrost to contribute a set of 9 artistic illustrations to the portraits that will be featured in the upcoming Arctic Permafrost Atlas.

Devoured and retrieved from the ocean

Ice - while probably being one of the most vulnerable and worth protecting features in context of human induced climate warming, it sometimes can be a relentless enemy.

How do local Arctic inhabitants view permafrost change? New Story Map out on the findings.

Thawing permafrost affects many people's lives in the Arctic. How do local inhabitants view permafrost change? Take a look at it in our Story Map.

In collaboration with locals: ranking of risks related to permafrost degradation

Field work in Ilulissat, Greenland continues in close collaboration with the community.

Science communications - how visualisation is a key

Science communications are essentially about conveying an extremely complex and specialised messaged in a way that is understandable to anyone. Doing that, visualisation is a key.

Herschel welcomes the newbies with some rough conditions

The second leg of the expedition starts with the island flooded and wind gusts up to 65km/h. However, Grizzly and seal sightings make up for it!  

When the polar researchers celebrated the ice thaw in the Arctic

At the end of the 2nd week of the Yukon22 expedition, the team woke up to a new sound: waves rolling onto the shore!

Modeling Pan-Arctic Peatland Carbon Dynamics Under Alternative Warming Scenarios

New study shows that peatlands will largely retain their carbon sink capacity under less pronounced warming trends but will experience a major capacity reduction under strong warming scenarios.

The beginning of a surprising adventure in the land of the never setting sun

Recap of a surprising week of the Yukon22 expedition on Herschel Island (Qikiqtaruk) still locked in an icy embrace while the sun never sets.

Nature Blog: Arctic coastal erosion accelerates permafrost carbon loss

Erosion of the Arctic coast could double in pace by 2100 as a result of climate change. However, uncertainties in future coastal erosion estimates, and in their impacts on the Arctic climate still remain.

CORDIS highlights the Nature Climate Change publication predicting increase in Arctic coastal erosion

CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service of the European Commission highlights the new coastal erosion predicitions by Nunataryuk.

Strong increase in thawing of subsea permafrost in the 22nd century caused by anthropogenic climate change

New publication presents results from first implementation of subsea permafrost in a global Earth System Model.

New Nature Climate Change publication on increase in Arctic coastal erosion

New Nunataryuk publication is out in Nature Climate Change on increase in Arctic coastal erosion and its sensitivity to warming in the twenty-first century.

PeCaBeau webinar on Thu 27 Jan 2022

Many of you know that the PeCaBeau (Permafrost Carbon on the Beaufort Shelf) project has a strong affiliation to Nunataryuk. An APECS-ARICE webinar on the project will air Jan 27, 2022.
