Leading the UNIS strategic project ‘Developing a permafrost and meteorological climate change response system to build resilience in Arctic communities’- PermaMeteoCommunity
Leading the INTPART project ‘Landscape & infrastucture dynamics of frozen environments undergoing climate change in Canada, Norway and Svalbard’ – FROZEN CANOES
Leading the Svalbard Strategic Grant: Using SVALGREEN for research and higher education – interdisciplinary cooperation in a Pan-Arctic perspective combining SIOS and GIOS (SVALGREEN)
AG-352 Geohazards and geotechnics in high Arctic permafrost regions (10 ECTS)
An interdisciplinary project focusing on developing resilience in Arctic communities by providing a climate change response system. This system will assist decision-making by providing real-time key geo-scientific observations affected by the increasing climatic changes, especially the high Arctic environment.
