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”.  We want to allow you to get a glimpse of the people behind scientific discoveries.

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.
