The award ceremony for the Prix de Quervain 2022 will take place on 24 November. This award for Polar and High-Altitude Research is attributed to early-career scientists.
Ice cores provide information about past climate and environmental conditions as well as direct records of the composition of the atmosphere on timescales from decades to hundreds of millennia. With the pioneering work of Hans Oeschger of University of Bern on carbon dioxide in polar ice cores, a long tradition of ice […]
"flüchtiges eis, nachrichten von morgen" is a contemporary revue, an atmospheric digital event that tells of dying giants, but also of a future with a future. For over a year, a complicity around the PolARTS (Art Meets Polar Science) tandem of Sabine Harbeke and Margit Schwikowski has been dealing transdisciplinarily with ice core research, melting glaciers and the climate crisis, talking about the redistribution of values and designing alternatives.
