Arctic Antarctica

Expedition: Arctic islands 2017

3 July 2017 - 11 August 2017 Wrangel Island and Chaun River

An expedition to the Russian Arctic

30 May 2017
This summer, a Russian-Swedish research expedition will be conducted to far east Siberia in the Russian Arctic to study the effects of climate change on Arctic ecosystems.

The Arctic islands project studies the consequences of climate change for terrestrial Arctic ecosystems. A warmer climate is expected to drive a northward expansion of competitive warm adapted species, and Arctic species will eventually be marginalised to islands in the high Arctic.
