This event, hosted by the French Embassy, celebrates the 20-year anniversary of the joint French-German research base AWIPEV in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. As a recent study has shown, the impact of climate change is almost four times greater in the Arctic than elsewhere, a phenomenon that has been dubbed “Arctic amplification”. Within the circumpolar Arctic, the Atlantic sector and the region around the Svalbard archipelago are the warmest.
Located in this key region for climate change, AWIPEV offers French and German institutions a vital platform for conducting research. Brief lectures will highlight findings in the areas of atmospheric, glacial, permafrost and marine research made at AWIPEV over the past two decades.
Registration for online participation is not required! Please register until the 12 June if you participate on site in the French Embassy in Berlin.
