Project description

Emerging research project on the focus area Changing climate and northern environment
Focus institute: Kvantum
Faculty: Science

The overarching aim of the project is to investigate the geodiversity-biodiversity relationship under climate change. The project combines new statistical methods, state-of-the-art technology, and extensive spatio-temporal data at high-resolutions. The project focuses on ecosystems most vulnerable to global warming: Arctic, Antarctic, and alpine tundra. The project represents the very core of modern geosciences and geospatial modelling, and combines theory and tools of geology, geomorphology, hydrology, climatology, and biogeography.
