New website on research in the Arctic

A new website called Polar Portal now makes it possible for everyone to gain access to the latest findings by Danish research institutions monitoring and investigating the rapid climate changes affecting the Greenland ice sheet and the sea ice in the Arctic.

The Greenland ice sheet is the second largest mass of freshwater ice on the planet, but since 1990 this ice sheet has begun to shrink rapidly and the mass loss in recent years is approximately four times greater than it was before 2000.

Now, a new website called Polar Portal has been created to collect and publicize the very latest results in Danish research on these accelerating climate changes in the Arctic region. This new project, funded by the Danish Energy Agency - Dancea Climate Fund, sets out to make the vital information on this disquieting climatic development in the Arctic more accessible to the public. Polar Portal addresses the consequences of such a development that will affect not only the Arctic region, but the entire world.

The contents of Polar Portal are free to the public and provided by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and DTU Space.
