Scandinavian/north european nework of terrestrial field bases (SCANNET)

Objective

The AIM is to establish a distributed network of existing field sites to address questions of variation in system sensitivity and response to environmental change in relation to physical conditions, local variation in drivers , and consequences for stakeholders. WHY? Northern Europe has experienced extreme and variable climates in the past resulting in selection of organisms, processes and systems. Future climate change is forecast to be greatest in polar regions, interacting with land use, pollution and other factors. The impacts and feedback effects have important resource, conservation and socio-economic implications within the Arctic - and for lower latitudes. Global observing systems (GTOS) , circumpolar (AMAP , CAFF ) and European (EEA) organisations require improved spatial and combined effects of environmental chancel of the main field bases propose to co-operate to form an interactive group of site managers and researchers to assess and
