Findings from their expeditions will be published weekly through the PAGE21 winter blogs. There you can learn about temperatures in the Arctic during harsh winter season, weather conditions and difficulties it can cause for humans 'activities.
What is more, you can learn the basics about the Arctic permafrost and get the insight into the real work of researchers.
PAGE21 blogs have been published since summer 2012. They have gotten great recognition from scientists, general public and policy makers. For last two years they have been visited over 300 000 times.
PAGE21 project aims to understand and quantify the vulnerability of permafrost environments to a changing global climate, and to investigate the feedback mechanisms associated with increasing greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost zones.
This research will make use of a unique set of Arctic permafrost investigations performed at stations that span the full range of Arctic bioclimatic zones. The project will bring together the best European permafrost researchers and eminent scientists from Canada, Russia, the USA, and Japan.
The PAGE21 is a Large-scale integrating collaborative project under the ENV call topic "Vulnerability of Arctic permafrost to climate change and implications for global GHG emissions and future climate" (ENV.2011.1.1.3-1) coordinated by Professor Hans-Wolfgang Hubberten from AWI.
