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.
Members of PeCaBeau (Permafrost Carbon on the Beaufort Shelf) travelled to Québec City in Canada to take part in a two-day planning workshop held by Amundsen Science.
Michael Fritz from AWI wins the Potsdam Prize for Science Communication 2019 for his involvement in the arts and science project to produce a series of outreach comic strips about permafrost.
The Greenland Science Week invites researchers, business partners, policy makers and organizations along with the general public to participate in a week focusing on science in the Arctic.
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.
New Permafrost Coastal Systems Network (PerCS-Net), a forum for reinvigorated research, knowledge integration, and management of environmental change at the fringes of the Arctic.
At the end of the 4th Takuvik expedition to the Mackenzie Delta, Bennet Juhls (AWI) and I were asked by the Peel River team to repeat water sampling from the creeks along the Dempster Highway between Inuvik and Dawson City.
One of the fundamental goals of conducting science is to be able to communicate it to others. As scientists, we are not always effective communicators, especially when addressing non-peers.
Everything is packed. The truck is fully loaded with our equipment meant for complete autonomy during several days. Bennet and I are gearing up as the temperatures are dropping close to 0oC in the Delta.
