Marine research at Umeå University is strong and internationally competitive. We study grand challenges related to the effects of climate change and human impacts on the marine environment, with focus on sub-Arctic, Arctic and extreme environments and their land sea interactions. Access to important infrastructure and international collaboration lays the foundation for our multidisciplinary research remit. Thereby this research contributes to society’s strive towards a sustainable future.
Access to advanced infrastructure strengthens the marine research at Umeå University and opens up for international collaboration. Umeå University takes part in several networks for international coordination of marine infrastructure, such as the EU programmes AquaCosm and eLTER PPP.
