ARCPATH is funded by Nordforsk.
ARCPATH is part of the Joint Nordic Initiative on Arctic Research. This was established in order to generate new insights into both the challenges and opportunities confronting the Arctic region. The Responsible Development of the Arctic: Opportunities and Challenges – Pathways to Action programme is cross-disciplinary.
Marianne Rasmussen is work-package leader on climate, socio-ecological systems, cetaceans and tourism together with Niels Einarsson from University of Akureyri. PhD. student Olli Loisa is doing his PhD project on this topic and we deployed C-PODS (porpoise detectors) in Eyjafjordur and Skjálfandi bay for one year to describe the annual relative abundance of both harbour porpoises and white-beaked dolphins.
