Arctic landscape

UNH Arctic

The Arctic is on the front lines of climate change, with surface temperatures rising twice as fast as the global average, dramatic loss of mass in sea ice, the Greenland ice sheet and other glaciers, and rapidly thawing permafrost. Not only is a warming and thawing Arctic driving far-reaching impacts in Arctic ecosystems and social systems, changes in the Arctic have profound implications for the environment and social systems across the globe.

UNH Arctic aims to build a more vibrant and interdisciplinary network of Arctic researchers at UNH, increase UNH’s visibility within the national and international Arctic dialogue, and assist in the transition to more sustainable communities.
