Polar ecology course - Geosciences (GeoEco)

The project provides education in the field of polar Geosciences with special emphasis on ecological issues, it is strongly conected with the Biosciences project realised at the same location.

Great to see you here!

Did you know that there are {{related}} projects registered now with keywords matching your project, and {{close}} projects with fieldwork within 10km of your fieldwork site?

check them out here!

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.
