ScAN Research Spotlight as ASSW2024

In March-April 2024, the Arctic Science Summit Week 2024 took place in Edinburgh, bringing together over 800 participants from around the world to collaborate on Arctic research across all disciplines.

We are grateful to have been involved in the organisation of the event and for the opportunity to share our members’ research. On the first day of the conference, ScAN research spotlight session featured three speakers presenting their work to the ASSW audience.

Expertly chaired by Dr Anna Gebruk from the University of Edinburgh, the session featured:

  • Beth Langley from University of Glasgow presenting on “Arctic and sub-Arctic Sedimentary Carbon: Cajor Contributions to Global Marine Sediment Carbon Stocks”;
  • Georg Kodl from the University of St Andrews presenting on “Microclimates, Soil Moisture, and Vegetation Dynamics in the sub-Arctic Tundra”;
  • and Alona Roitershtein from Robert Gordon University presenting on “Put in Context: Place-Based Sustainable Tourism Strategy Evaluation in The Orkney Islands”.
