ArcticWEB

A Multi-disciplinary Arctic Research Network

  Home

  What is ArcticWEB?

ArcticWEB is an academic initiative to create an international network of scientists dedicated to conduct active multi-disciplinary research on ecosystem processes in the Arctic, and to study the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems in the context of climate change. ArcticWEB will largely benefits from ongoing initiatives such as the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP), a working group of the Conservation of Arctic Fauna and Flora (CAFF) under the Arctic Council.

Coordinated research stations along environmental gradients offer unique opportunities to understand and forecast the effects of climate change on Arctic ecosystems

  What is our mission?

   Address broad research questions using either theoretical or empirical based modeling approaches
   Promote collaborative and coordinate monitoring projects under the CAFF
   Set quasi-experiments along environmental gradients
   Organize biennial international multi-disciplinary workshops
   Foster collaborative analyses and synthesis on ecosystem functionning
