Arctic Research Bloggers


The INTERACT network runs an arctic research blog.There’s stories from scientists working on all sorts of things, in all manner of places, right around the arctic circle. Take a read of the most recent updates…


  • Going down to the river to sample September 10, 2019
    One week has passed and we still have not experienced any rain. The dry season is going on, the Zackenberg river level and speed are decreasing, the small streams are drying up. Aiming at investigate and characterize the mobilization of mineral and organic compounds, we have dedicated our second week to collect water samples along […]


  • Identifying field sites and first measurements September 3, 2019
    We spent the first day scouting out possible field sites. We prepared as possible in in advance, – via Google Earth, maps and landcover products, talking to people familiar with the area, reading the literature, but it’s never quite the same as being there on the ground. We’d earmarked some possible sites from GoogleEarth, – […]


  • First week at Zackenberg August 28, 2019
    Our arrival to Greenland was quite spectacular: clear skies during the flight from Akureyri offered stunning views of glaciers and floating icebergs. After a quick refueling at Constable Point and another brief stop at Daneborg (the marine science station connected to Zackenberg Research Station), we arrived safe and sound at our home for the coming […]


  • Meetings and greetings August 23, 2019
    The call for INTERACT Transnational Access is in good speed and we’ve already received so many inquiries regarding it, indicating a high number of good quality applications for the call! In relation to the call we’ll also go to several meetings to greet the scientists working in arctic research to tell about the possibilities related […]


  • Equipment roll call August 16, 2019
    We’ve brought a range of instruments with us to the Arctic, to simultaneously measure plant photosynthesis and remote sensing data of individual plants and leaves. This is because in order to understand how plants are behaving, and changing, over large areas we must first link these remote sensing techniques to measured plant processes at the […]
