The video presents the Ph.D course that took place in Zackenberg, North – East Greenland.
The movie shows the fieldwork of ten young permafrost researchers from four Nordic Universities who set out to remote Zackenberg valley at 74 ° N in NE-Greenland.

The students participate in a PhD course entitled AG 833 "High-Arctic Permafrost landscape dynamics in Svalbard and NE-Greenland".

Goal of this course is to better understand the landscape history and to link present and future periglacial processes with carbon and nitrogen dynamics at two high-Arctic sites: Zackenberg valley in NE-Greenland and Svalbard.

AG 833 is organized by the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), Norway, and the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM) at the University of Copenhagen, financially supported by Perma-Nordnet of NORDEN, a project as part of the "Nordic Ministerial Council" Arctic collaboration program in Norway.
