Welcome to NICH-Arctic
The project entitled “From Nunavik to Iceland: Climate, Human and Culture through time across the coastal (sub)Arctic North Atlantic” (NICH-Arctic) provides the opportunity for setting a unique research network for transdisciplinary integration of climate-related data. The overarching goal of NICH-Arctic is to explore and assess the resilience and vulnerability of the environment in a subpolar latitudinal zone marked by large amplitude climate and sea-ice variations. This project will combine geological, historical, instrumental records and narrative information from the cultural practices and the representations of Nordic environments through the literature. The proposal has been built upon the experience of the applicants and co-applicants from previous or ongoing international and multidisciplinary collaborations in the study areas, with emphasis on changes in natural and human ecosystems through time, from the past millennia to modern days.
