ICOS Sweden Annual Workshop in Abisko, August 22-24
ICOS Sweden Annual Workshop 2016, focusing on the effects of climatic changes in the subarctic - boreal intersection. The workshop takes place at 22-24 August 2016 at Abisko Scientific Station, Abisko, Sweden, and includes a short excursion in late afternoon on the arrival day (22 Aug) and a field visit to the ICOS Sweden Abisko-Stordalen measurement station (23 Aug).
About the workshop
The workshop 2016 will highlight the effects of climatic changes in the subarctic - boreal intersection. Effects of climate change in the intersection between the southern extent of soil permafrost and the northern tree line is generally assumed to be among the most dynamic found at the global scale.
Due to changes in amount and duration of snow cover, the region is subject to more pronounced increases in temperature than most other terrestrial surfaces. Such changes have implications for the regional environment as a whole, with direct consequences for
permafrost coverage, vegetation composition, hydrology and carbon budgets.
