Jonasson, Christer; Sonesson, Mats LU ; Christensen, Torben LU and Callaghan, Terry LU (2012) In Ambio 41(Supplement 3). p.178-186
Abstract
This article gives an overview of the studies on

the environment surrounding the Abisko Scientific

Research Station in Swedish Lapland. The long-term

monitoring of the Station on processes related to the climate,

and to the physical, biotic, and chemical environmental

conditions is particularly addressed. Some variables

are recorded since more than 100 years. The obtained data

in combination with results from short-term studies and

manipulation experiments are important to understand past

and future conditions of the ecosystems. This has practical

applications for the planning of tourism, transports, reindeer

herding, and for societal... (More)
