The NERC Arctic Station event will take place on 8 February 2023. This will be held at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge and online. If you are a current user of the NERC station in Ny-Ålesund, or if you are considering applying to use the station in the future or just interested in finding out more about the Station, then we strongly recommend attending this informative event and meeting the team. Registration if free!
The Station provides excellent facilities and accommodation for researchers from across all UK universities, research institutes and other recognised organisations, and their international collaborators, wanting to carry out a range of environmental research which includes ecological, glacial/periglacial geomorphology, hydrology and atmospheric chemistry and marine research.
