About ArcTrain

ArcTrain is most simply an International Research Training Group with a focus on topics located in the Arctic realms. Many processes taking place in the Arctic are only rudimentarily known, yet they play a major role in e.g. global climate or far-reaching food webs. Since the corresponding research questions require new specialists, the Canadian-German cooperation ArcTrain was founded. By an excellent educational framework, an interdisciplinary view on Arctic problems and a strong international network we are given the means to try to tackle those large problems in our future.

About This Blog

With this blog we as ArcTrain students want to open a small window into our lives. This means we want to tell you something about our research, but also our everyday lives as “researchers”. About once per month we want to allow you to get a glimpse of the people behind scientific discoveries.
