Czech Polar Research Infrastructure 2 (CzechPolar2)

The CzechPolar2 is project providing background for scientific research in the Arctic. The project will be based in Josef Svoboda Station in Central part of Svalbard. The research is aimed at the wide spectrum of disciplines that contribute to the worldwide understanding of the global threats.

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.

The primary aim of the CzechPolar2 project lies in providing background for the scientific research in the Arctic, the results of which significantly contribute to the worldwide understanding of the global threats (climate change, ozone hole, sea level rise, changes in ocean, carbon and greenhouse gases circulation, biodiversity threat, etc.) and technological advancement. Arctic activities are much closer interconnected with mid latitudes including Central Europe due to the ongoing climate change. The project will have based in Josef Svoboda Station in Svalbard that consists of the main base in Longyearbyen and a field station in Petuniabukta. These are the mainly locations of interest and the infrastructure will be used as a platform for a collection of environmental data and biological material. Project is planned as a support for biological studies (microbiology, parasitology, botany, zoology, algology) in the areas with main focus on ecological studies (changes in the ecosystems, life cycles of invertebrates) plus the studies on the chemical and physical environmental influences (influence of temperature, UV, chemistry on survival of organisms, carbon and greenhouse gases circulation).
