New catalogue of Arctic research stations

The EU-funded INTERACT project has produced a catalogue of northern-latitude research stations included in its network, to help researchers plan Arctic-based research.

The INTERACT research stations provide a platform for arctic research and monitoring. Activities range from small, short term research projects to larger, long term monitoring programmes. The stations are thus visited by many researchers and research groups. The new INTERACT catalogue of research stations includes descriptions of the physical setting, facilities and services offered at the stations. The aim of the catalogue is to help researchers identify research stations that suit their specific needs.

The INTERACT network includes 33 Research Stations in 14 countries (since the initiation of INTERACT seven additional stations have been added and INTERACT is now represented in 18 countries). The stations are located in all major environmental envelopes of the Arctic providing an ideal platform for studying climate change and its impact on the environment and local communities.

Since alpine environments face similar changes and challenges as the Arctic, the INTERACT network also includes some alpine stations located outside the Arctic.

The Station Catalogue was published in 2012 and can be dowloaded from the INTERACT website: http://www.eu-interact.org/station-managers-forum/report-deliverables/station-catalogue/.

Several ALTER-Net partners are involved in INTERACT.
