ARCI I Global change & Northern environments

The theme encompasses physical geography, hydrology, water resources and ecohydrology, aquatic and terrestrial ecology as well as ecosystem processes in Northern environments.

The presentations can pertain to, for instance, studies on geodiversity, glaciers, permafrost, seasonal frost, snow dynamics in catchments, peatland hydrology, hydrological fluxes and moisture sources, biodiversity loss and change, trace gas feedbacks, and interactions among organisms within and among trophic levels.

ARCI II Human-Environmental Relationships

This theme explores long-term changes in the ways people have lived in and conceptualized the Arctic. With an emphasis on past and present socio-cultural processes, the session focuses on human-environmental and human-animal relationships from a holistic perspective.

The presentations can pertain to, for instance, cultural histories and traditional environmental knowledge of natural resource uses in various scales; their meanings for local communities in the changing Arctic; extraction of natural resources and other industries in the Arctic, including tourism; the social and cultural effects of transformations of reindeer herding practices; ethnic relations in the Sámi area; indigenous concepts of cultural environment; and finally, sustainable use and management of natural resources in the Circumpolar North for human wellbeing.

ArcI III Sustainable Systems, Resource Use and Development

This theme covers a broad set of expertise that is needed to provide sustainable solutions for urbanization, infrastructure, water and environmental protection, human health, and good quality of life.

The presentations can pertain to, for instance, studies on the sustainable use of Northern natural resources, resource management in the Arctic environment, Arctic architecture and environmental adaptation, clean energy systems, urban infrastructure, massive-wood architecture, mineral resources and biomasses utilization, participatory action studies and Arctic culture.
