Flagship US Arctic research facility welcomes EU scientists
Date:6/16/2014

e region, feedbacks to global climate change through gas and hydrological fluxes and adaptations of plant and animals to the Arctic.

Researcher Pierre Rasmont of the University of Mons in Belgium, who will be at Toolik Field Station in August, is investigating whether climate change in the Arctic is contributing to the worldwide decline in abundance and diversity of wild bumblebees.

Researcher Agata Buchwal from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland and a visiting Fulbright Scholar at the University of Alaska Anchorage will be at the station in July. Buchwal will be studying whether the rings of tundra shrub stems provide reliable timelines for shrub growth in the Arctic.

The Barrow Environmental Observatory, located at the northern tip of Alaska on the coast of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas, has tundra, lakes and wetlands reserved for long-term environmental monitoring and habitat manipulation experiments.

The Barrow facility will host researcher Jakub Hruska of the Czech Geological Survey in the Czech Republic. Hruska's project will look at the acid/base character and the origin of dissolved organic carbon in different water bodies as a means for better understanding carbon cycling in Arctic environments.

"With the participation of the U.S.'s two terrestrial Arctic observatories, INTERACT can now provide enhanced international access throughout the circumarctic," said Craig Tweedie, science liaison in the Barrow area and associate professor at the University of Texas at El Paso.
