Can Arctic charr and stickleback adapt to the climate changes in Greenland through evolution? This is the question behind a new research project managed by the Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University.
The warmer climate in the Arctic has resulted in plants flowering earlier than previously and for a shorter period of time overall. This has caused a shift in the period when insect pollinators are present. Aarhus University researchers can now demonstrate that this development means that the number of some species of insect pollinators has been halved in fourteen years. by Christina Troelsen
A new research project with the Arctic Research Centre investigates whether arctic seaweed forests may act as oases for animals with calcareous shells, animals that are challenged by the climate change induced acidification of the world’s seas. by Signe Høgslund

When the Arctic Science Partnership (ASP) held its first meeting in November, 2012 an ambitious plan was developed to send an international team of researchers to Nuuk to study sea ice.  Why was it ambitious?  We only had four months to organize it!  With participants from three countries and fou

During the past decades the temperature has increased significantly in the Arctic. This has reduced the extent of the sea ice cover by approximately 29% since 1980. Greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2 and N2O) are known to affect the climate and these gasses have therefore received a lot of attention.

Aiming to understand the processes controlling the greenhouse gases, major research efforts have been launched with Nuuk as focus area. The sea, sea-ice and land as well as its vegetation absorb and release greenhouse gases.

Canada Excellence Research Chairs Presentations - hosted by the University of Alberta.The public is invited to attend this very special event on campus where some of Canada's greatest minds will share key developments and the latest discoveries in their respective research programs.

The University of Manitoba will celebrate the grand opening of the Nellie Cournoyea Arctic Research Facility on March 18, 2013.

Researchers are now making a start on setting up an ultra-modern research station right up in the northernmost part of Greenland. Here they will study climate change and its impact on the air, sea, geology, fauna and flora in the High Arctic region. Project Manager Henrik Skov, Aarhus University, expects researchers to flock from all over the world to make use of the unique opportunities at Station North, after the project received a major grant from the VILLUM FOUNDATION.
The international research collaboration ASP (Arctic Science Partnership) has prepared a comprehensive 5-year plan for a research programme focusing on urgent climate problems in the Arctic.
