HIARC: Anthropogenic Heat Islands in the Arctic - Windows to the Future of the Regional Climates, Ecosystems and Society

The project will investigate an ecosystem and societal adaptation to warmer micro-climates created by anthropogenic heat pollution in the urban arctic over the last 30 – 40 years.

Even on the background of the amplified arctic warming, this heat pollution has created permanent urban heat islands (UHIs) where urban temperatures are by one-two degrees higher than those in the surrounding areas. Distinct to mid- and low-latitudes, such pronounced UHIs in the arctic are found even in small settlements like Longyearbyen, Svalbard with 2500 inhabitants.
