CATS – The Changing Arctic Transpolar System

With the joint Russian-German research project „CATS – The Changing Arctic Transpolar System“, a consortium of 10 research institutions and universities in Russia and Germany aims to assess how climate change will affect the highly sensitive Arctic environment and to what extent these changes may impact the climate in Europe.

The main research region is the western Laptev Sea shelf and continental slope, Vilkitsky Strait and Severnaya Zemlya (Cape Baranov).
