PalaeoArc: Processes and Palaeo-environmental Changes in the Arctic: from Past to Present

Launched during its 2nd International Conference on ‘Processes and Palaeo-environmental changes in the Arctic: from past to present’, the international network PalaeoArc is seeking contributions for a Special Issue of Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research to be published in 2022. All papers addressing PalaeoArc’s overall theme to understand past and present environmental changes and processes in high latitudes are welcome- conference participation is not necessary.

Knowledge of past environmental processes and change in the Arctic are key to understanding the present and future of the Arctic, and vice versa. PalaeoArc is an international network research program that seeks to understand and explain climatically induced environmental changes in the Arctic that have taken place throughout the Quaternary and continue today. As a research network, PalaeoArc strives to bring together and build bridges between scientists from different countries and career stages, and from different disciplines in Arctic science. This includes marine and terrestrial researchers, working either with field data or numerical modelling approaches.

There are four major themes to the program:

  • the role and dynamics of Arctic ice sheets, ice shelves, and glaciers
  • the role and dynamics of high latitude oceans and sea ice
  • the role and dynamics of the terrestrial environment and landscape evolution
  • the climatic response to, and interaction between, these different parts of the Arctic system

PalaeoArc builds on and extends the legacy of previous network programs that include PAST Gateways (Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal Gateways), APEX (Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes), QUEEN (Quaternary Environment of the Eurasian North) and PONAM (Polar North Atlantic Margins – Late Cenozoic Evolution), all of which organized thematic special issues. Learn more about PalaeoArc at www.palaeoarc.no.

Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to cold regions physical and environmental research. Hosting this PalaeoArc Special Issue on AAAR’s open access platform provides the opportunity to extend the network even further.

Submission Instructions

Papers from outside the PalaeoArc conference are welcome.

Please contact Guest Editor Astrid Lyså to add the title of your paper to the list of papers.

Select the special issue title “PalaeoArc” during submission.

Publication is expected in May 2022. Papers will be published when they are accepted, and then will be assembled into the special issue along with an Introduction in May 2022.
