We strive to make our research relevant for the public, policy makers and other scientists. This is especially critical in a world that is being rapidly transformed by humans leading to climate change and environmental degradation. We hope that through our science communications efforts we will contextualize this research to create relevance for these various stakeholders.
Today is the first day this year on which the sun will not set before midnight. In fact, starting two days from now and continuing until late July (20th July), the sun will not set at all.
Climate change and its impacts threaten the health of Arctic freshwater ecosystems, with continued warming pushing cold-water species unique to the Arctic—such as the Arctic char—to the brink of regional loss.
The course in how to communicate science is taught yearly to doctoral students in the midst of their education.
EU är en nyckelspelare för det globala klimatarbetet, genom olika regelverk och satsningar på förnybar energi. Men ambitionsnivån varierar mellan olika partigrupperingar. Hur vi röstar i parlamentsvalet kan avgöra om EU jobbar för eller emot klimatförändringarna, menar forskare.
Do you already have any plans for summer vacation? This time, I’ve prepared a list of citizen science activities that will inspire you to make the most of your time while you are hiking, climbing, or diving.
Last week, a warning of a heightened risk from wildfire spreading in Sweden was issued. The alert made me think about public involvement in wildfire management and the benefits of technology.
Once, I decided to participate in an online citizen science project. I was surfing the Web and noticed that joining some Internet-based projects requires registration and some not.
Sometimes we don’t realize that we are citizen scientists until someone tells us that we actually are. I was about 12-14 years old when I stepped into the world of people-powered research – I was observing bees on a regular basis.
Flera värmerekord för april har slagits i de nordligaste delarna av Sverige i veckan. Och i de nordligaste
gränstrakterna mot Finland var det tvåsiffrigt i plusgrader, rapporterar SVT Oddasat.
Global environmental change affects the transportation of nutrients and organic matter to lakes. Researchers of the Climate Impacts Research Centre (CIRC) at Umeå University studied how the transporation of these substances into lakes influences phytoplankton, an organism found in aquatic ecosystems.
