Synergistic effects of sea ice-free periods and contaminant exposure on energy metabolism in polar bears
Education The combination of the effects of pollutants and climate change has been hypothesized to be a worst-case scenario for arctic wildlife. The Barents Sea subpopulation of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) is subject to pronounced loss of sea ice habitat due to changing climate. …
Assessment Norsk Polarintistutt har i sitt tildelingsbrev for 2016 fra Klima - og miljødepartementet fått i oppdrag å lage kunnskapsgrunnlag for forvaltningsplanen Sentral-Spitsbergen. …
Research Primary objective: The objective of N-ICE2015 is to understand how the rapid shift to a younger and thinner sea ice regime in the Arctic affects energy fluxes, sea ice dynamics and the ice-associated ecosystem, as well as local and global climate. …
Synergistic effects of sea ice-free periods and contaminant exposure on energy metabolism in polar bears (BearEnergy)
Research Prosjektet har som mål å undersøke effektene av havisdynamikk og miljøgifter på energimetabolisme i isbjørn fra Barentshavet. Vi sammenligner kondisjon, helse, energimetabolisme og miljøgiftnivåer hos isbjørnbinner fra Svalbard vår og høst.
Monitoring The Arctic has experienced substantial climate change and during recent decades Arctic climate change and effects thereof have accelerated. …
Assessment AMAP is mandated: • To monitor and assess the status of the Arctic region with respect to pollution and climate change issues. • To document levels and trends, pathways and processes, and effects on ecosystems and humans, and propose actions to reduce associated threats for consideration …
Monitoring Environmental monitoring of Svalbard and Jan Mayen (MOSJ) is an environmental monitoring system and part of the Government’s environmental monitoring in Norway. …
