The contributions to this volume cover atmospheric conditions above Ny-Ålesund, as well as physical conditions in by: In recent decades, global warming hiatus/slowdown has attracted considerable attention and has been strongly debated.

Many studies suggested that the Arctic is undergoing rapid warming and significantly contributes to a continual global warming trend rather than a hiatus. In this study, we evaluated the climate changes of Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, a representative location of the northern North Cited by: 3.

The course will investigate how climatic and watershed processes influence the modern glacial, fluvial, lacustrine and periglacial systems in the high Arctic setting of western Svalbard. Monitoring of the rapidly changing Arctic cryo-/hydrosphere will extend existing environmental data sets for the field site at Kapp Linné that establish a robust baseline against which future changes will be.

The unique location of the Zeppelin Observatory makes it an ideal place for monitoring global atmospheric gasses and long-transported contaminants. The Observatory is located on the Zeppelin Mountain, in an untouched Arctic environment, far away from substantial contamination sources.

The report was commissioned by the Norwegian Environment Agency in order to provide basic information for use in climate change adaptation in Svalbard. It includes descriptions of historical, as well as projections for the future climate development in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and ocean, and it includes effects on the physical.

Svalbard has historically been a base for both whaling and claimed a nautical-mile ( km; mi) exclusive economic zone (EEZ) around Svalbard inw square kilometres (12, sq mi) of internal waters andsquare kilometres (, sq mi) of EEZ.

Norway retains a restrictive fisheries policy in the zone, and the claims are disputed by Russia. Ny-Ålesund is on the island of Spitsbergen, part of the remote and largely untouched Svalbard archipelago, the Arctic Crown of Norway.

Ny-Ålesund started as a coal-mining settlement, but now it is an international center for scientific research, where several countries run research stations to study climate change.
