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.

REFRACT project is included within ARCTIC-BIODIVER research program, which is focused on the development of biodiversity scenarios at national and circumpolar scales. REFRACT aims to monitor key biogeochemical aspects of Arctic inland freshwaters to test the influence of nutrient enrichment on structural and functional biodiversity. Biogeochemical parameters need to be traced on the field for later inclusion in predictive models addressing scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services across spatial scales, one of the main objectives of ARCTIC-BIODIVER.
