Global warming counteracts 1800 years of cooling

An international research team has shown that sea surface temperatures have been cooled down over a period of 1800 years, and that the cooling during the last 1000 years (from 800 to 1800) is presumably due to volcanic eruptions. The water was coldest during the Little Ice Age – i.e. before human-induced global warming cancelled out the cooling…

En isstrøm vågner op

Den Nordøstgrønlandske Isstrøm har forholdt sig i ro frem til midten af 00’erne. Nu er den begyndt at sende store ismasser ud i havet, og da der er tale om den største isstrøm i Grønland, kan det komme til at påvirke havvandsstigningerne mærkbart i fremtiden. Forskerne har dog ikke styr på hvor meget.  Læs mere om dette og meget andet i seneste…

Large aggregation of bowhead whales discovered in the Northeast Water Polynya

During a survey of the Northeast Greenland walrus population in August 2009, several bowhead whales were observed in the Northeast Water Polynya. As the survey was done under strict systematic conditions, an abundance estimate in the area could be calculated. This resulted in astonishing 102 whales (95 % CI 32-329) and is the largest abundance of…

I foråret 2012 til koralisering i landsbyens private hjord er formålet at adskille hunnerne fra hannerne, så hunnerne kan føde sine kalve i fred. Flokken bliver således opdelt i to under hele kælvingsperioden og den første tid efter. På billedet ses hvordan også børn og unge tager del i arbejdet, det er 'learning by doing’. Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård 
Når du står og betragter en flok rensdyr springe igennem sneen undrer det ikke, at rensdyrhyrderne fortæller at rensdyr har evnen til at trække dårligdom ud af ens sind og erstatte det med velvilje.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Jeg er i gang med at puste luft igennem tyktarmen. Mine hænder er iskolde, for varmen bliver kun i tarmene ganske kort tid på sådan en vinterdag. Tarmene bruges til rensdyrpølser eller man steger dem som de er over bål. Nogle af tarmene gemmes til kælvingsperioden hvor ingen rensdyr slagtes og kød derfor er en mangelvare.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Under forårets fødselsritual ‘Kilvej’ fodres de hellige ildbrædder Gihr-Gihr, som rensdyrenes ejer og fysisk manifestation af forfædrene. De fodres med fedt fra familiens rensdyr. Hele ritualet udføres når de første rensdyr begynder at kælve, for at rensdyrflokken må vokse sig stor og stærk. Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Alting er besjælet, også tundraen og alle verdens retninger. Her fodrer pigen Masha tundraens og retningernes ånd med rensdyrblod-suppe. Når ofringerne er gjort deles suppen mellem deltagerne.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård

Forfædrene i dig

Hvem er jeg? Og hvordan er min personlighed opstået? Vi har ofte svært ved at forstå vores sammensatte karaktertræk og søger svar hos coaches, psykologer og psykoterapeuter som aldrig før. Antropolog Jeanette Lykkegård har levet på den sibiriske tundra blandt tjuktjerne, der har en interessant forståelse af livets cyklus og af den sammensatte…

Zackenberg Research Station celebrates its 20th anniversary

In 1995, visionary researchers established the Zackenberg Research Station in North-East Greenland to monitor climate change in the area. Today – twenty years later – the climate change is precisely described in a unique data set.

Prestigious international award to PhD student from the Arctic Research Centre, Aarhus University

When Jacob Thyrring this week takes his seat in the flight deck on board AA-6535 with Washington as destination, he is flying in more than one sense. The talented PhD student participates as the only Danish representative in the large-scale and three-week long 'International visitor leadership program' in the United States.

The ancestors within you

Who am I? From whom have I inherited my personality? We often have difficulty understanding our complex personality traits and seek answers from coaches, psychologists and psychotherapists like never before. Anthropologist Jeanette Lykkegård has lived on the Siberian tundra among the Chukchi who have an interesting understanding of the cycle of…
