After two years of project work, the University Library at UiT Norway’s Arctic University is proud to launch a search portal where you can find all available research-based information about the polar areas in one place, both scientific articles, reports, and datasets. The search portal is developed in collaboration with researchers from the Norwegian Polar Institute and UiT Norway’s Arctic University.
The Open Polar, The Global Open Access Portal for Research Data and Publications on the Arctic and Antarctic was launched in Tromsø on 1 September, 2021.
UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Academia Borealis – The Academy of Sciences and Letters of Northern Norway, and Tromsø Research Foundation welcome nominations for The International Mohn Prize for Outstanding Research Related to the Arctic (The Mohn Prize).
The Mohn Prize, which carries a cash award of 2 million NOK (approximately 195 000 €), is awarded biennially.
The prize is awarded to an individual or to a research group who has published excellent research related to the Arctic, who holds a leading position internationally in his/her/their field of research, and who has brought to light groundbreaking new knowledge related to nature and/or culture in the Arctic.
Nominees for the prize will be evaluated by an international scientific committee.
The recipient of the Mohn Prize will be announced in October 2021, and the award ceremony will take place in Tromsø in early 2022.
We hereby invite you to nominate candidates for the Mohn Prize 2022.
Nominations should be submitted using the nomination form available at mohnprize.no.
The deadline for nominations is the 31st of July 2021.
It is a great pleasure to introduce the Norwegian Academy for Polar Research Strategy 2021 – 2025.
The interest in the Arctic is continuing at full strength and many new nations, scientists and institutions are in line to study, enjoy and explore the multiple Arctic. At the same time anthropogenically driven climate change is relentlessly altering the socio-political, economic, and environmental conditions in the Arctic, and our activities in the region are in turn exacerbating these effects. In our Strategic Vision we talk about the duality of the global Arctic; the impacts on the region have a global origin and the changes in the Arctic affect the globe. We have boosted our knowledge about the Arctic significantly in the past decade, but we still need to push forward with our science to keep abreast with the ongoing processes, feedback mechanisms and change. Our membership reflects the needed scientific diversity, and the new strategy calls for broad involvement of our members in defining research areas that are also relevant for policy makers.

This book provides in-depth information about the sea ice in the Arctic at scales from paleoenvironmental variability to more contemporary changes during the past and present centuries. The book is based on several decades of research related to sea ice in the Arctic and its variability, sea ice process studies as well as implications of the sea ice variability on human activities.
The chapters provide an extensive overview of the research results related to sea ice in the Arctic at paleo-scales to more resent scales of variations as well as projections for changes during the 21st century.
The authors have pioneered the satellite remote sensing monitoring of sea ice and used other monitoring data in order to study, monitor and model sea ice and its processes.

The Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, with a location in the high Arctic and easy accessibility, represents a unique platform for high quality international research and education.
The Svalbard Science Forum, The Research Council of Norway and The Norwegian Polar Institute in cooperation with The Ny-Ålesund Science Managers Committee (NySMAC) invite researchers, research managers and stakeholders to the second Svalbard Science conference. The conference will focus on Svalbard in a pan-Arctic setting, aspiring to enhance cooperation and quality within Svalbard research, build and strengthen interdisciplinary and international networks and consolidate Svalbard as an attractive platform for Arctic research.
Registration is open for up to 250 participants and will be open till the conference is fully booked or up to 1 September 2019.
Organised by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research.
It has become increasingly clear that the Arctic is undergoing major climate change and that it also impacts large parts of the global environment. The scientific basis for the changes was published 2019 in the IPCC report ”The Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate”. With this report as a basis the Class for Geosciences from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences together with the Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research will host the symposium “Security and preparedness in the changing north – research perspectives”. The emphasis will be on changes and impacts that are relevant for us in Scandinavia and focus on five specific themes.
The ongoing warming and its consequences for the environment cause a need for increased research in a number of disciplines. At the same time, the geopolitical situation has intensified, which has led to great concern that free research will be hampered. Our choice of themes aims to cover a wide range of research issues. We include everything from international policy issues, how people’s living conditions change, how well climate change can be projected, to the ability to provide appropriate research infrastructure as well as open access to necessary research data.
