The last two days, authors of the next State of Environmental Science in Svalbard (SESS) report gathered in Oslo to exchange information and find synergies between the contributions.
Currently, eight groups have received funds to contribute with a chapter to the SESS report 2019. The focus themes, terrestrial ecology, glaciology and atmospheric studies, complement the previous chapters of the SESS report 2018 and authors discussed possible links between the contributions in both reports. Several obvious and also unexpected connections were found and the authors will now work together to produce a coherent report on the environmental state of Svalbard.
The SESS report 2019 will be released during the Polar Night Week in January 2020. Read more about the SESS report 2019 here.
