Japan-Norway Arctic Science and Innovation Week 2016

Posted on June 2nd, by NorAlumni in Past Events. Comments Off on Japan-Norway Arctic Science and Innovation Week 2016

June 2-3 2016

Addressing major scientific challenges and new opportunities in polar environments

Polar Regions are rapidly changing as a result of global climate change. Amplified temperatures in the Arctic, modified circulation patterns at high latitudes, variations in sea ice and snow cover, and ocean surface temperature, are all important factors influencing the global climate system. The changes therefore represent major challenges, as well as opportunities, for the human presence in the polar areas with potential large environmental, economic and social implications for society.
