The aim of the present project is to continue the monitoring of contaminants in the atmosphere in Greenland to detect temporal and geographical changes and to understand the mechanisms behind them especially those related to climate and to changes in sources and source regions.
The Arctic has heated twice as much as the rest of the world with large consequences for example for the wildlife, the pollutants and the cryosphere and with possible large positive feedback effects on climate. Although the knowledge about the Arctic has increased over the last years, Arctic is still one of the regions of which we know least. This is especially true for the high Arctic. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of infrastructure.
North Water Polynya Scientific Conference will bring together scientists working on the North Water Polynya Region to present recent research and to discuss status, trends and the future of the North Water Polynya as well as future research needs.
