Terrestrial Research Group

We study the terrestrial ecosystem in the Arctic region to explain its structure and influence on the global environment. We combine field surveys on the carbon water cycle and permafrost, with research on the dispersal and genetic diversity of large-sized mammals, fishes and plants, and their potential interactions with natural disasters. We also examine the volcanic activity and seismicity to understand their generation mechanisms in order to provide predictions.
