Arctic collaboration is strengthened

The stage is set for a significant strengthening of Danish efforts in Arctic research and education following the two-day conference held at Hindsgavl Manor in Middelfart, which was attended by eighty researchers and representatives from authorities in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The aim was to kickstart the Arctic Initiative, which…

Since 2009, whalers along the east coast of Greenland have caught killer whales whose presence has increased in the sea along the coast. Particularly in the Tasiilaq area, killer whale serves as food for both humans and sledge dogs. Photo: Haukur Sigurdsson.
A female killer whale weighing about six tons caught outside Kulusuk in August 2013. The whale had fed on seals and baleen whale, and samples were taken of tissue and milk from the mammary glands.

Miljøgift gør orme kuldskære

Nogle miljøgifte er mere skadelige i et koldt klima end i et varmt, fordi de påvirker temperaturfølsomheden hos visse organismer. Nu har forskere fra tre danske universiteter sammen påvist hvordan. Det kan give mere præcise risikovurderinger af forurening, navnlig i Arktis.
