Community engagement in Ilulissat: Reflecting on the past six years of collaboration with locals

Close collaboration and co-production have been central to the methodological approach employed in our multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder driven permafrost project. 

Arctic Permafrost atlas is now out

The Arctic Permafrost Atlas serves as a critical and urgent call to action, emphasizing the immediate need to address the profound consequences of climate change.

Permafrost Days 2023 - local workshop in NWT Canada

The “Permafrost Days 2023” gathered together scientists with local stakeholders in NWT, Canada to discuss the relevance and applicability of scientific results in communities.

Climate change adaptation in Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Longyearbyen, Svalbard, has become a showcase of Arctic climate change. However, we know little about how these changes are dealt with locally. This article examines climate change impacts and adaptation in this non-Indigenous “community of experts”.

The pan-Arctic catchment database (ARCADE)

The ARCADE is the first aggregated database of pan-Arctic river catchments that also includes numerous small watersheds at a high resolution.

There is more carbon in permafrost beneath the ocean than on land

A modelling study suggests that Arctic shelf permafrost is a globally important long-term carbon sink storing double the amount stored in lowland permafrost.

Small watersheds may play a disproportionate role in arctic land-ocean fluxes

While over 99% of coastal arctic rivers drain small catchments, future projections of land-ocean fluxes are based on data from large rivers. New study encourages inclusion of smaller catchments to support assessments of arctic ecosystem change.

Final Nunataryuk annual meeting starting in Verbania, Italy

Nunataryuk final General Assembly starts today at the beatufiful Verbania on the shore of Lago Maggiore close to Milan Italy.

Webinar: "Permafrost Research: current activity and future needs"

On Tuesday 21 March Nunataryuk will present the latest on permafrost research in an EU PolarNet 2 webinar.

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.
