Global change in the Arctic – practical effects and their evaluation
On completion of the course, participants shall be able to have a deeper understanding of the manyfold processes leading to changes in the Arctic and will be able to predict changes in the future caused by these processes. During a preparation time, the course leaders will have lectures and discussion rounds for the students to introduce into the issues of the course. In this time the students will prepare their project to be conducted on site. The teachers will introduce the students into the necessary techniques, e.g. application of drones. During field work on Svalbard, the course leaders will demonstrate the effects of global change in a high Artic permafrost environment and how they are evaluated during a number of excursions from Longyearbyen and from the Isfjord radio station, where the department have a research history since 1972.
