Research

The research based on AMUPS covers many aspects of Earth sciences, although other disciplines are warmly invited as well.   

The ongoing projects are:
- Landscape morphodynamics in the high Arctic - Billefjorden basin, Svalbard (RiS ID 4974)
- Dickson Land Ice Masses Evolution (RiS ID 4894)
- Reconstruction of recent transformations in the high-Arctic glacial landsystems (RiS ID 5919)
- Integrated Monitoring of Natural Environment at Adam Mickiewicz University Polar Station (RiS ID 10005)
- Development of fans in the Arctic: geomorphic variability and processes' dynamics as a paraglacial response to climate changes (RiS ID 10306)
- Aeolian and niveoaeolian accumulation in periglacial and glacial environments in central Spitsbergen (Ebba Valley) (RiS ID 10388) (Project site)
