The Arctic is warming more rapidly than any other region on the planet. The northern Barents Region is a Norwegian Arctic hotspot that has changed 2-4 times faster than other parts of the Arctic during the last three decades.
Ancient settlements and urban sites offer the keys to more direct understanding of cultures, but they are very challenging in exploration. The ERC Across-Borders project accepts this challenge and focuses on settlement patterns in Egypt and Sudan in the 2nd Millennium BC.
Predicting the future with climate mathematics Carrying out experiments on the entire climate system is unfeasible. This is because of the simple fact that we have only one Earth and it is in use.
We have developed a globally unique purification method whereby we purify and concentrate used glycol so that it can be reused. In this manner, we will save the Earth’s resources, since glycol is extracted from crude oil and is a non-renewable resource.
Agriculture’s role in environmental issues are both large and complex, often contributing to both problems and solutions to the global environment. For example, agricultural practices have the potential to increase soil C storage which can positively influence soil quality and help mitigate the rise in atmospheric CO2.
