Particular focus is given to linkages between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, transport of nutrients and green house gases and effects of climate change on biological and geochemical processes. The course is given by researchers at Climate Impacts Research Centre in Abisko, Lapland. Important parts are fieldwork, methods and writing a scientific report.
