Project final results will be published in a comprehensive Arctic Permafrost Atlas to be released in 2023

Nunataryuk project results will be published as a collective in 2023 in the first ever Arctic Permafrost atlas.

Multidisciplinary field work in Ilulissat Greenland in September 2021

Multidisciplinary group of Nunataryuk researchers headed to Ilulissat Greenland in September to conduct the long waited field work.

COP26 Cryosphere Pavilion

Permafrost will be highlly visible at the COP26 via the Cryosphere Pavilion. Events can be followed live via social media channels.

The impact of permafrost degradation on the life in Northwest Greenland.

New study illustrates the impact of permafrost degradation on the physical environment, hunting and harvesting, housing, and the economy in Northwest Greenland.

State of The Cryosphere Report 2021: A Needed Decade of Urgent Action

New Report details how a combination of melting polar ice sheets, vanishing glaciers, and thawing permafrost will have rapid, irreversible, and disastrous effects on the Earth’s population.

The first ever pan-arctic satellite-based record of expanding human impact in permafrost coasts

Newly accepted paper introduces the first pan-arctic satellite-based record of expanding infrastructure and anthropogenic impacts along all permafrost affected coasts.

New joint communication on the EU's role in and plans for the Arctic region

The European Commission and the European External Action Service unveiled the new EU policy for the Arctic.

PeCaBeau - The Beautiful Arctic

Our scientific work was actually already finished. And everyone just wanted to sleep. But then THE opportunity arose...

PeCaBeau - Station after station after station....

Sixteen hours of daylight. This was the beginning of our trip. We have now arrived at about nine hours.

PeCaBeau - First station completed

It took us seven days to reach our first station. We are interested in carbon, sediment and nutrient dynamics on the Beaufort Shelf. That’s why we needed to wait a bit until we finally went to where the Northwest Passage ends.

Steaming through the Northwest Passage and getting ready

Since 09 September we are at sea. A charter flight with about 35 crew members and the same number of scientists brought us from Québec City to Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.


It is not easy to tell you how many we are - I have not even tried to count. Since more than three years we work on this project and it will take even longer to work on all the data and samples we will bring back to our labs and offices and to our partners all over the world.

PeCaBeau! Let’s go.

After almost a 2-year hiatus from active research activities, our field campaigns are back on! This blog series will take you to the Canadian Arctic and onboard the CCGS Amundsen.

Serpentine Ice Channels and their Interaction with Riverbed Permafrost in the Lena River Delta

A new study, led by a number of Nunataryuk researchers, shows that optical and radar remote sensing can be used to map ice frozen to the riverbed vs. ice, resting on top of the unfrozen water layer.

First pan-Arctic assessment of dissolved organic carbon in lakes of the permafrost region

A first pan-Arctic assessment of dissolved organic carbon in lakes of the permafrost region is now published in Biogeosciences.
