Arctic Natural Climate and Environmental Changes and Human Adaptation:
From Science to Public Awareness
The SciencePub project aims to:
  • Advance our fundamental knowledge on natural climate and environmental change in the Arctic during the last ice-age (130 000 years) by improving system understanding and quantifying certain climate components
  • Advance our understanding of human adaptation strategies to past rapid and large-scale changes in the physical environment following the decay of the last ice-sheet starting
    15 000 years ago
  • Generate public outreach strategies that will leave a lasting legacy of increased public awareness of the natural environmental systems of Arctic
