Arctic warming will accelerate climate change and impact global economy
Carbon released into the atmosphere by the increasing loss of Arctic permafrost, combined with higher solar absorption by the Earth’s surface due to the melting of sea ice and land snow, will accelerate climate change – and have a multi-trillion dollar impact on the world economy.
Our research groups include a wide range of researchers from the natural and social scientists. They work in multi-disciplinary teams within, across and beyond these groups to help find solutions to the big global environmental challenges.
Our research challenges provide a focus for our fundamental and applied research, ensuring our work helps provide the underlying knowledge needed to find effective solutions.
