Description
NICH-Arctic proposes transdisciplinary investigations of Human, Cultural and Environment interactions in the Arctic-subarctic North Atlantic in a context of climate change and industrialization. The Arctic-Subarctic coastal regions are subject to large amplitude changes of climate and sea ice conditions, which play a vital role in accessibility through navigation and livelihood of the cultural communities since prehistoric times. The history of this regions is however poorly documented from instrumental data. Disciplinary knowledge has been developed, but with limited communication across disciplines, and between scientists and stakeholders. Hence, it appears ur...
