The nutrient cycle in the Arctic will be the focus when researchers from the four Ny-Ålesund flagships convene to discuss how to increase collaboration across flagships and research disciplines. This workshop will bridge the keynote seminars on the nutrient cycle to the three days workshop in Orvieto in spring 2022. The event is open for all, and free of charge.

We have 32 participants signed up for the workshop, and the registration is now closed. If you have questions please contact Christina A. Pedersen, NPI.


The workshop will focus on two topics:

  1. Kongsfjorden net ecosystem metabolism (nitrogen budget)
  2. Nutrient budget in atmosphere, biosphere and soil continuum: carbon, nitrogen and more
