Anthropogenic impact on Svalbard ecosystems (AISE)

This program will investigate local, regional and global anthropogenic impacts on terrestrial, fresh water and marine arctic ecosystems and consider the management of these resources over time. Our main focus is on changes of arctic ecosystems of Svalbard due to human activity, such as industrial exploitation of natural resources, environmental pol

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

This program will investigate local, regional and global anthropogenic impacts on terrestrial, fresh water and marine arctic ecosystems and consider the management of these resources over time. Our main focus is on changes of arctic ecosystems of Svalbard due to human activity, such as industrial exploitation of natural resources, environmental pollution, eutrophication, and global climate change. As the present situation is already affected by anthropogenic interference, we consider that it is highly relevant to recognize and understand historical, political and legal drivers of change and their present-day consequences more thoroughly to allow making predictions into the near future and to design appropriate management systems. We will reveal the footprint of local historic and current human activities in Svalbard and elucidate the motives leading its development. We will study the consequences of the human footprint on terrestrial, fresh water and marine ecosystems, ecosystem functioning and structure, separating stressors into local activities or large scale processes. We will include analyzing relevant political and legal governance processes in order to ensure the sustainable use of Arctic resources. The core program combines multidisciplinary expertise of partners of the Willem Barentsz Polar Institute and aims at initiating and/or strengthening a lasting collaboration between the main Dutch Polar research institutions with an integrative view on fundamental and strategic research in an international setting. It seeks to develop a pro-active role of the Netherlands in environmental governance in the Arctic and to better inform Dutch society about its historic, present and future link with the Arctic.
