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”.
A modelling study suggests that Arctic shelf permafrost is a globally important long-term carbon sink storing double the amount stored in lowland permafrost.
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.
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.
New publication presents results from first implementation of subsea permafrost in a global Earth System Model.
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.
New review study on the drivers, dynamics and impatcs of the changing Arctic Coast has been published in Nature Reviews - Earth and Environment.
Nunataryuk project results will be published as a collective in 2023 in the first ever Arctic Permafrost atlas.
New study illustrates the impact of permafrost degradation on the physical environment, hunting and harvesting, housing, and the economy in Northwest Greenland.
Newly accepted paper introduces the ﬁrst pan-arctic satellite-based record of expanding infrastructure and anthropogenic impacts along all permafrost aﬀected coasts.
This new database on sediment geochemical and physical properties in the Arctic Ocean will help to better understand the release of methane from the sediments in Arctic Ocean.
New study presents the development of a risk management framework adapted to the Arctic coastal context.
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.
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.
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 and highlighted in EOS Research Spotlights.
