The project Nutrient cycle – linking the Atmosphere, Terrestrial, Marine and Glaciological flagship programs in Ny-Ålesund will bring together all four Ny-Ålesund flagships to evaluate nutrient fluxes between Kongsfjorden and its surrounding environment – terrestrial, glacier, atmospheric and ocean realms – and how some of these fluxes are expected to change with the ongoing warming trends.  

Over the past two years the project has arranged:  

  • Online keynote seminars (October 2020)   
  • A one-day workshop in Oslo, 31 Oct 2021. The workshop focused on the two topics: Kongsfjorden net ecosystem metabolism, and Nutrients, carbon and nitrogen in atmosphere, biosphere and soil continuum   

Read more and see recordings of the keynote seminars here.

Now we invite for a three-days workshop in Orvieto, Italy 20.-22. Sept 2022.  

Workshop program 

The program committee is working to set up an exciting and interesting program for the participants. We can promise some new topics on the agenda, but we will also set aside time to follow up on the previous discussions in Oslo with dedicated writing sessions on the 22end Sept. The writing sessions will ultimately lead to peer-review publications.   


Register for the workshop here

The registration deadline is 15th July 2022. 


Orvieto is a small town in the centre of Italy (around 100 km North of Rome). Orvieto has a historical medieval city centre, where the accommodation and the dinners will be organised. The workshop will be hosted by the Research Institute on Terrestrial Ecosystems of the National Research Council at the headquarter at Villa Paolina, in Porano (around 10 km far from Orvieto). We will arrange, for the 3 days of the workshop, for a shuttle transfer between Orvieto and the venue.  

How to get there 

The easiest way to reach Orvieto from abroad is to arrive with plane to Rome and then take the train to Orvieto.  


Orvieto has a historical city centre up on a hill, and there are several possibilities for hotel room. We will most likely do a common booking for all the participants.  

Costs and funding possibilities 

The workshop is free of charge and includes lunches, coffee breaks and dinner on the 20th and 21st September. We will also cover the hotel costs for four nights 19-23 September.  

For those of you that have difficulties finding money for the travel from your own home institution, the project have some limited funds available to support travel. Please contact Christina Pedersen if you would like to be considered for receiving travel funds.
