Polarforskere samlet i Aarhus

Mulighederne og konsekvenserne ved udvinding af råstoffer i Arktis var på dagsordenen, da danske polarforskere var samlet til den årlige polarforskerdag, som i år fandt sted på Aarhus Universitet.

Der forskes i øjeblikket i, hvor råstofferne findes i Arktis, men også i, hvordan man får fat i dem uden at gøre skade mere end højest nødvendigt (Foto: Colourbox).

Arktiske råstoffer skal udvindes med tykke fløjlshandsker

Der er grund til at træde varsomt, hvis vi gerne vil bevare den særlige natur og kultur i Arktis, så det forestående råstofeventyr ikke bliver en gyser.

Colossal upheavals

Interdisciplinary collaboration is absolutely necessary to understanding the consequences of climate change at the top of the world. A new Arctic research centre gathers interdisciplinary research expertise from all over the globe, and its goal is nothing less than to become the foremost international centre for research in the field.

Researchers from the centre will spend shorter or longer periods in the area, just as students will have an opportunity to go there for courses and research.

Greenland lemmings' collapse pushes predators to brink

Lemmings don't commit suicide by running blindly off cliffs—that's a myth. But lemming populations in their Arctic tundra home can rise and fall dramatically in just a few short years. And the sudden collapse of a lemming population can mean hard times—or even extinction—for their predators, a new study shows.
