Large-scale interdisciplinary Arctic research project receives nearly 19 millions in funding

Nordvandet is a unique Arctic marine area in the Thule region which contains large amounts of marine mammals and sea birds. The area has been the basis for human settlement through more than 4,000 years. Melting of the Arctic sea ice now has extensive consequences for the high Arctic ecosystems and the animals and people who live in the area.…

18,9 mio. kr. til storstilet forskningsprojekt om økosystemer i Arktis

Carlsbergfondet, VELUX FONDEN og VILLUM FONDEN har sammen bevilget i alt 18,9 mio. kr. til et storstilet tværvidenskabeligt forskningsprojekt om økosystemer i Arktis og deres dynamik i et langt tidsperspektiv.

Solen har større indflydelse på havtemperaturens udsving i Atlanterhavet, det fænomen, der er kendt som den Atlantiske Multidecadiske Oscillation (AMO), end forskerne hidtil har troet. I hvert fald ses der en tydelig sammenhæng de sidste 250 år. Foto: Colourbox

Atlanterhavet danser med solen og vulkaner

Naturlige svingninger i havtemperaturen i Nordatlanten har en betydelig indflydelse på klimaet på den nordlige halvkugle. Udsvingene er et resultat af en kompleks dans mellem naturkræfter, men forskere fra Aarhus Universitet kan nu påvise, at de sidste par hundrede år har solens aktivitet og påvirkning fra vulkanudbrud ført an i dansen.

Researchers reveal the dynamics behind Arctic ecosystems

The climate – combined with the body size of the herbivores – is crucial for how the tundra’s ecosystem works. This is shown in new research, which is also the first step towards a general understanding of ecosystems on land.

TV2 OJ: IQ - Iskold forskning

I Grønland blomstrer planterne tidligere og tidligere, så insekterne skal skynde sig om sommeren, og antallet af brystkræft er eksploderet. Forskerne på Aarhus Universitet følger de dramatiske klimaændringer og forureningen i de arktiske områder tæt.

Grønland under den kolde krig og den nye globale rolle

Gennem 3 år har et forskerhold støttet af Carlsbergfondet undersøgt udforskningen af Grønlands naturressourcer under den kolde krig. Projektet ”Exploring Greenland” har særlig fokus på forholdet mellem USA, Grønland og Danmark, og den intensive interesse for Grønland gennem perioden 1950 - 1960.
