Nowhere else are the global climate changes more evident than in the Arctic; the melting of glaciers is accelerating, rainfall conditions change, spring comes earlier, the ice sheet on oceans are decreasing, and the oceanographic and hydrographic conditions are changing – and it is all happening surprisingly fast. These changes are very important for the living conditions in the terrestrial, limnic and marine ecosystems. The Institute of Biology houses a number of Arctic projects researching the interrelationship between the climate changes and the biological, chemical, and physical conditions in the Arctic. The Institute of Biology has entered a cooperation agreement with the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources www.natur.gl in order to facilitate further research in the Arctic. Among other things, this means that it is possible for students at SDU to complete their thesis and PhD projects in Greenland supported by theGreenland Institute of Natural Resources. Students will typically have two supervisors – one at SDU and one at the institute in Greenland.
