INTERACT – International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic

INTERACT is an infrastructure project under the auspices of SCANNET, a circumarctic network of currently 71 terrestrial field bases in northern Europe, Russia, US, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Scotland as well as stations in northern alpine areas.

The project has a main objective to build capacity for identifying, understanding, predicting and responding to diverse environmental changes throughout the wide environmental and land-use envelopes of the Arctic. You can learn more about the project in the video below:

The University of Innsbruck Station Hintereis is now part of the Alpine station network contributing to INTERACT (#21 on the map below, though these numbers change as stations are added).

About lindsey

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
