Changing climate and northern environment
Wide-range Arctic research
Warming and rapid changes in the Arctic threaten vital ecosystems in the North as well as traditional cultures and livelihoods. We study Arctic interactions and biodiversity loss, monitor changes in the Arctic and promote sustainable development in northern societies and around the planet.
In addition to the Arctic research, we also study:
- the activity of the Sun and changes in the activity, and the effects of the Sun on the atmosphere and climate
- solar system astronomy
